We all know that Santa always knows when we're sleeping and when we're awake and if we're being bad or good.

Well, NORAD makes it easy to turn the tables on Santa and track him as well!

As Christmas comes closer and closer, it's time to check in with the NORAD Santa tracker with your kids. On Christmas Eve itself, checking in on the NORAD site is a fun way to get your kids in bed -- "Hey, look Santa is in Michigan already; we'd better get you in bed before he gets to Wisconsin!"

Even before Christmas Eve though, there's lots of fun stuff to do -- from games to movies and music. There's even fun merchandise to buy -- Santa tracker apparel, a personalized letter from Santa for your kids, even a certificate that brands your child an official Santa tracker!

Check in with the Santa tracker during the countdown to Christmas!
