Christine Taylor, Digital Platform Manager for Fox CT and The Hartford Courant, is providing the following suggestions for holiday-related apps that your kids will love!
*FaceTime Call or Video Chat with Santa
For the kids who get a little freaked out by sitting in the Big Guy's lap, a video chat is a great option, allowing him to share this experience with Mom or Dad, through the screen.  While this can be pricey, parents are often left with a personalized, sharable video that makes for a great keepsake.
*A Charlie Brown Christmas
Everyone's favorite holiday special is updated for the next generation!  Kids can move characters around and even play the iconic Peanuts song on a piano.  Sure to be a big hit for kids ages 4 to 8.
*First Words Christmas Edition
This app, for toddlers, teaches the younger set spelling and reading skills, in a cool, Scrabble-like format with a holiday spin.
*Norad Santa
This app is sure to please on Christmas Eve, when kids can watch Santa's journey around the globe and track his progress.  Complete with neat graphics of landmarks such as Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty, checking on Saint Nick's big ride is a great activity for the whole family.
