There is a really cool website that kids will enjoy this time of the year, northpole.com. There are activities for kids and parents like recipes, crafts and stories.

Children can write Santa a letter and he will write them back. They can read stories about Santa Claus, print stories and color the pages, find out about the elves and reindeer and countdown to Christmas.

Parents can get gift ideas, find holiday recipes or submit their own and enjoy making crafts like ornaments, handmade Christmas cards and more.

Make sure you click on each village house to see what they are used for.
