If you are like me, you love finding places that bring the joy of Christmas not only to kids, but us adults, too! I’m curious to what Santa does on his days off. Also, I have become quite fond of “Decorate Your Own Christmas Tree” games.
Now onto the fun! My first, and most favorite place to go is Elle’s Christmas. You don’t only have to decorate a tree. If you want, there is also “Build a Snow Family.” I personally like all of her “Decorate A Christmas Tree” links. Most of the settings give a homey feel and look. It just isn’t a free-standing Christmas tree with non-blinking lights and a few decorations. And almost every setting (with the exception of 2) comes with it’s own little girl who is ready to open up those presents. The thing I like most about Elle’s Christmas page is that when you are finished with your decorating or building, you have many other things to do. The “A Soldiers Poem” is written very well and it might just bring a tear to your eye. This year, for Christmas, don’t forget our soldiers! Not just for Christmas, but all year through. Are you curious what kids write to Santa? Well, they have a link where you could read letter to Santa! Some of the letters are heartbreaking, sad, funny, and all of the above. I don’t know about you, but I love getting into the minds of kids- to hear what they are thinking. Touching on the “Decorate Your Own Christmas Tree” subject again, I am going to show you just what you can do with those! It’s as easy and drag and drop down.
The picture may be big, but I wanted you to see that you can create a Christmas-filled scene to your liking! Wahooo!!
What’s Christmas without Santa Claus? Ive been trying the perfect place to write Santa, play games, or get to know the elves. Well, I believe I have come across such a site. It’s called NorthPole.com. Whether you are a kid, parent, or teacher, this is the place to go. If you have kids, you might want to send them over to ElfChat. There you get to “chat” with Bonnie and Bif. Perhaps they want to star in their own Christmas story? For them to star in their own story, just type in what they ask for. You can even print the story- which I think it lovely! They do have a place where you can send Santa a letter, but I have yet to master that part. When I will, I will let you know. Now, I would go through-out the full website and tell you all of the great things they have- but that would bore my readers to death! Also, for you teachers, they have things there for you too! So, for Christmas, this might be a good place for your classes!
Every country has it’s own Christmas tradition. If you are wondering how they celebrate Christmas in Scotland or any other country, all you have to do is visit http://www.santas.net/aroundtheworld.htm. They’re country list is extensive and it might take you a few hours to get through all of them. They even have a list of Santa’s favorites- from websites, to music, to just about anything. They even have recipes on there. So if you are looking for something new to fix this holiday season, be sure to check out the recipe section.
And last, but surely not least, is Claus.com. It is chockful of fun stuff! You can even check his Naughty or Nice list.Want to see what Santa said about me?
Still very much on nice list, but must continue good behavior. Should eat more vegetables instead of junk food. Was very polite last Thursday! When doing chores, needs to do them as well as possible. Often exhibits good behavior
Sorry, Santa. I’ll try to do better!! The website is fun and cheerful and gets you in the holiday spirit- even in the middle of Summer!
HO HO HO!!!!!
