1. Make elf post

How do Santa’s elves deliver post? Down the chimney of course! Create a house from a small cardboard box with the inner tube from a kitchen roll for the chimney. Cut a ‘door’ in the house big enough for your child to push open and close again. Now give the house some festive decoration. use painter’s tape to secure the chimney to a wall (painter’s tape can be left on any surface for several days without leaving a mark). Now, go to activityvillage.co.uk and print off fun Christmas picture outlines. Roll up each sheet of paper into a thin scroll and secure with a small-finger-friendly hairband. Now your youngster can ‘post’ his elf mail down the ‘chimney’ (it may need a helpful poke), open the door, take it out, discover the picture and colour it in. Hours of fun!
