This Santa stuck in chimney craft is such a simple yet fun idea for kids to try this Christmas. Our craft template comes with big parts that are great for little hands to cut out and glue together. Because of its simplicity, this Santa craft is perfect for preschoolers and kindergartners.
We usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to go out and chose our Christmas tree. But this year is a year like no other and, because we definitely need a bit more joy into our lives, we celebrated this Thanksgiving by the Christmas tree.
The boys are definitely very excited and have already started making plans how to catch Santa. Every year they analyze what went wrong the previous year and try to come up with a new and improved plan.
This year they want to set the alarm clock for 11.40 pm to wake up 20 minutes before Santa gets here (They know for sure Santa leaves our presents at midnight) and find him in our living room.
Considering all this planning I think making a Santa stuck in the chimney looks like a good idea. Who knows, they may be in luck and find Santa stuck in our chimney.
