Visit the North Pole

If you like your Christmas white, there’s no better place than the North Pole. Kids can play games in the Elf Clubhouse, visit the Workshop, Toyshop, Reindeer Barn and Mailroom, among others. They can see a disco-dancing Santa, personalise their own story with their name, trim a tree, colour in, open Mr’s Claus’s recipe book to find an eye-boggling range of kid-friendly Christmas recipes, even send a letter to Santa. Parents and teachers will love the specially-made resources like the Good Deeds Calendar and flashcards. Fun fun fun!

Get Elfed

Belly laughs are absolutely guaranteed at this hilarious site. You can elf yourself, your children, even your pets by downloading a photo of your face and attaching it to the bodies of dancing elves. Uploading photos is super easy, and the brilliant online software even allows you to position a feature that will open and close your mouths, to sing along with the song. Choose your song, your dance and then email to friends and family as a Christmas e-card. Festively fabulous stuff.
