It’s almost Christmas and the Elf on the Shelf has been leaving some challenges behind the Christmas tree advent calendar. One of them was to build a fireplace for Santa. The elf left some pieces of wood for the children so they found some pictures on the computer and printed them off. Some of the children measured the wood then put it in a vice on the workbench to hold it and took turns at cutting through the wood making sure each other were safe by telling each other they were ‘too close’ because the would get ‘cut into bits’ and making sure they were wearing a glove. When it’s finished, they will nail it together and put it up so Santa has something to get into nursery with.
