Luckily it didn’t take long to get there. Jingle the elf met us outside and explained what we would be doing throughout the afternoon.

Once everyone had finished we went into the forest and saw lots of giant candy canes and lollipops. Jingle told us that the sneaky animals had been hiding her jigsaws, so we all went off the find different parts.

Then it was time to have a campfire. We sang some Christmas songs while Jingle toasted marshmallows for us all. They were very yummy!

It was a bit cold out in the forest so we headed back inside and warmed up with a delicious hot chocolate.

Then we made a reindeer bauble for our Christmas trees at home. It was lots of fun!

It was nearly time to see Santa but before we did, we all had a turn in his sleigh. It was full of presents.

We heard bells ringing and it was Santa waiting for us! He had his naughty and nice book and checked with everyone that he had the right presents on it.
