Christmas Online Games For Kids
The christmas holidays can certainly be a challenge - trying to keep the kids amused between all that present opening and eating while still trying to stay sane can drive the calmest of parents to distraction
You don't want to park the kids in front of the computer for the whole holiday, but if you are snowed in or it's just too cold grey and grim, here are some of the best Christmas online games and activities. There are both fun and educational websites - you might be tempted to try some yourself after a hard day's celebrating.
- Kinder Planet
A fun selection of Christmas themed games that grown-ups would like too - Christmas Tetris, a matching game, and the promise of Santa's Sleigh Ride. I quote 'Santa is on his midnight run when the Reindeer Liberation Brigade start throwing all sorts of objects at him. Help Santa dodge the objects so that he can deliver the toys on time.'
- Free Christmas Games
Christmas Mah Jong, slider puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and memory games.
- A Kid's Heart
A play and learn site with resources for kids and their teachers, with games for younger children such as memory match and arrange a nativity scene.
- Billy Bear 4 Kids
Online Games such as Santa Tic Tac Toe, Christmas mazes and wordsearches.
- Norad Tracks Santa
Not exactly a game but we love this site! Track Santa as he makes his deliveries all over the world! Santa's location around the world is updated every 5 minutes. Engrossing and educational fun.
