Santa Tracker: Norad and Google Earth

​Christmas Eve will be soon among us and there's nothing more fun than tracking Santa's path towards our houses! There are only 3 days, 18 hours, and 56 seconds until he begins his trek starting in Australia and heading west! The Norad Santa Tracker website has been tracking Santa for 60 years. Until the big flight begins, children and families can explore the North Pole learning about Santa's library, theatre, and more. You can also watch Santa videos! Just a little #NoradTracksSanta fun fact: #Norad's satellite system is so powerful, it can detect the red glow from Rudolph's nose!

Google Earth is also tracking Santa! Until Christmas Eve children can do activities each day on the countdown to Christmas. Games include art, coding, music, videos, and taking selfies with Elves! Then on the 24th, families can track Santa over Earth to see his location before parents coax children to bed.
