Fun Family Things to Do

At the North Pole we have television from all over the world. But instead of just sitting watching TV, we prefer to get together in small groups and play games, read books together, put together puzzles or talk about what is happening in each of our lives. After all, we are just one big, okay -- HUGE, family. Enjoy some of the ideas on this page.
