Santa Tracker Fun for Kids
Norad Santa Tracker
By far the most popular Santa tracker with Mykidstime parents was the official Norad Santa Tracker. For 60 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD), have tracked Santa’s flight. And on Christmas Eve you can follow Santa’s progress as he flies around the world.
“We always use Norad, it has pictures at different destinations and presents delivered.”
“We use Norad too and love to watch the news where they usually have a report saying where Santa is!”
