How We Brought the North Pole to our Kindergarten Christmas Party

Friday, 25 December 2015

Despite our forecasted green Christmas, we were able to tap into children's imaginations and bring a little of the "arctic chill" to our classroom with a North Pole Party.

The children visited four stations where they participated in a fun-filled activity at each stop.

They were invited to dress for the adventure by wearing their favorite winter hats and scarves.

“Elves” (parent helpers) were available to punch their cards and assist as needed at all stops along the way.

Santa's Workshop

At this stop, children decorated an ornment made from discarded pieces of mat board.

Mrs. Claus's Kitchen                       

Here children decorated a cookie of their choice using frosting and a variety of sprinkles.

The Reindeer Barn

Reindeer games were a huge hit and included a fun game of reindeer ring toss.

Winter Wonderland

Children got creative and produced a "flurry" of snowflakes using loose parts.

The only thing missing was the big man himself!

Next year, I'd love for Santa to stop by for a surprise visit. Until then, I'll be looking for a Santa suit and a willing volunteer. 

Thanks for stopping by!
