Whether you're a parent with Christmas-obsessed kids, or just looking for something to do during your lunch break, make sure you pass the 2018 Santa Tracker from Google for a festive party fun.
The interactive website and Android app encourages visitors to discover, play and learn throughout the December with Santa Claus & # 39; via an abundance of playful tasks and softly distracting buffoonlust. Oh, and coding lessons too.
Google's Santa Tracker is in its fifteenth year and comes with a renewed design to capture the joy of the holiday season better than ever.
"Under expert guidance from Mrs. Claus, the elves have updated the village with a striking look and a completely new content," says the site.
In recent years, visitors were able to unlock one activity per day until 25 December, but this year the advent calendar approach is a thing of the past and from now on you can dive directly to all 24 activities.
This year's offer is divided into three categories: Learning, playing and watching. Activities include Santa Selfie with which you can give the big man a make-over – if you've ever wondered what Santa would look like with a rainbow-colored beard, here's your chance. For something that is more educational, Code Lab introduces coding fundamentals that help navigate an elf through a forest while hunting for fallen gifts.
You can also learn about different holiday traditions around the world and a section with many different types of Christmas songs in different languages.
Short animations also bring the site to the attention A day in the museum and Elf Car, and include the many games Penguin Dash, Elf Jamband, and Gumball Tilt.
Educators who are looking for festive inspiration can download lesson plans that incorporate some of Google's learning activities, including those that focus on coding and holiday traditions.
And in the big night you can of course follow the progress of Santa while he drives around the world on his sleigh, while he gives presents. And also pay attention to the exclusive games that Google has promised to drop if Santa starts his most important trip of the year.
