5 Recommend Christmas Apps for Kids

There are hundreds of Christmas apps on the app store. Here are 5 Christmas apps for kids that I recommend. I downloaded several apps and looked at them from a parent’s point of view to see if there was anything objectionable. I then had my own children play them to see if they actually liked them. I hope your kids find them enjoyable as well.

Elfyourself The concept is simple, take headshots of friends and family and place them on dancing elves. My kids absolutely love this app and spent hours making dancing elf videos and just laughing up a storm. There a few in-app purchases where you can purchase additional dancing scenes and they are worth it (but not necessary).

How the Grinch Stole Christmas This is an interactive of eBook of the Christmas classic by Dr. Seuss. This book has two modes which give you the option of reading to your child or it can self-narrate. I’m used to seeing the television version and I forgot how charming the “print” version actually is.

Bogga Christmas Tree This is a mellow app that allows your child to decorate a virtual Christmas tree with everything from choosing the topper, lights, garland, and ornaments. My daughter has already asked to play this several times after she first tried it.

Sago Mini Music Box This is a gentle interactive game with a few cute animals including a Christmas mouse. My daughter was laughing constantly while playing this which caught the attention of my son who then wanted to play also. The good thing is that they could both play simultaneously.

Where is Santa – Santa Tracker I pretty much just use this app on Christmas Eve day to help build the excitement of Christmas. I’ll launch the app several times a day to show my kids where Santa is in the world. The counts down to when Santa is expected to visit our house. There’s a free and paid version. The free version has a banner ad that doesn’t interfere with the app.
