Santa's Workshop

It was a busy week way up north in Santa’s Workshop. We were being Santa’s elves making special things.

We sang lots of our favorite Christmas carols. We sang along to Iza Trapani's book, Jingle Bells.
We used jingle bells and wore Santa hats as we sang.
We used little people- Santa and his elves for pretend play. They traveled on the Polar Express to get to the North Pole.
We loved reading The Polar Express
by Chris Van Allsburg
and The Night Before Christmas by Jan Brett.
After  reading The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett again this week we couldn't forget Santa’s reindeer.
We scooped oats in a bag and added colored sugar so that the reindeer could spot the food in the moonlight. As we worked, we sang, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer".
We made cookies for Santa Claus to leave out for him on Christmas Eve. We sang "Up on the Housetop" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".
We used our handprints
and pictures of ourselves to make something special for mom and dad. We really did feel like Santa's elves.
Here's to the cutest little elves ever!
