The Week the Elves saved Santa…

It’s Four Days ‘til Christmas and all through the house,

every creature is stirring (including the mouse!)

Time is a’ticking and the day’s nearly here,

We’ve been tinkering toys for almost a year.

But where, can you spy, that jolly old man

With his white-trim’d red suit – he’s got the plan

It’s Four Days ‘til Christmas and where has he gone?

Santa’s gone missing! This all could go wrong!

But look at this man in red suit and long cap

He’s not all that jolly. He’s not all that fat.

His name here is ‘Krampus’ and he doesn’t seem

To know what Christmas really does mean

That’s what our Christmas Elves discovered at the beginning of the fantastic week that was our Christmas Elves Workshop.


From Ojo De Dios (Traditional Mexican woven baubles — now called ‘God’s Eyes’) to Spice Hangings, Bliss Balls to Shortbread, Shrinking Art to Tiny Nativities, we all had a great time.

To putting Krampus to sleep with a mix of herbs the children learned about in the local area, the Elves had a riot of a time. For their bravery, diligence, and hard work, they were all rewarded in the end…


When they found Father Christmas!
