Earlier this month I mentioned a way to get Santa to send a personalized video message to your child. It's by far one of my favorites and it's free.

However, this weekend I came across a few more other cool sites you may want to look into to help add some fun to your holiday.

Disney offers a similar service where you can upload your child’s picture or video. You will need to register to get started.

Google Voice has a service that lets you leave a voice message for Santa.

You can also help Santa create a personalized call to your child or loved one then have it call their house or send it to their e-mail.

At Smilebox  you upload a video or photo of your child and then wait for Santa’s response.

Every Christmas Eve Norad lets you track Santa’s location too. And even before Christmas Eve there are lots of cool interactive games and stories for your children to enjoy.

He’s also tweeting this year.

Want to track him from your smartphone? There’s an app for that.

It costs 99 cents to get it for your iPhone. You can find this and more Santa tracker apps for the Android here.

At Visit the North Pole you’ll find all kinds of interactive games and calendars that help you count down to the big day.

There’s also a Talking Santa Free app for your smartphone. It’s free for Android users and lets you tickle Santa, sneak inside his gift bag and create videos to share.
