He will engage his audience with festive banter and conversation about the presents, how the very good & best behaved children get the most gifts - he will tell the youngsters why he wraps and sleighs the best things for them to play with and he will educate them on his nine reindeer - Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Vixen, Cupid, Doner & Blitzen - and he will reinforce the Christmas message and he will leave them wanting more.

& Santa will entertain with a little bit of magic......he has drawn a lovely self portrait......but on the way to the children's house......the 'Grinch' stole all of the colors from the picture.......can the children help save Christmas, defeat the 'Grinch' and restore the colors to the picture of Santa........a little conjuring with lots of audience participation...........

Charming thank you letter after this booking...........
Good evening Santa,
We cannot thank you enough for taking the time in your busy schedule to visit us all today at Forest School. We simply had the most magical time with you. The children were mesmerised, and us adults, well we felt like children all over again in your presence
As I walked around I heard comments such as 'he is amazing' and 'this is the most magical santa experience we've ever seen'
So personally, and I know on behalf of the group, I cannot thank you enough for adding so much sparkle and magic to the children's Christmas - what a special gift you have! The children I think are still completely star struck.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, and please, if you have time, do come back and surprise us next year!!!!
Thank you a million times over. I've attached a few pics however there are so many, I will be uploading them tonight to my Facebook page if you would like to see/use any (Lealerbels Forest School).
All the very best for a special Christmas
