Santa’s Workshop Gift List

This resource is designed for use in a Santa’s Workshop role play area in the classroom. It contains gift lists for sixteen children, eight boys and eight girls. Each list has three gifts that the child asked Santa for, two gifts and a surprise.

The idea is that pupils, in role play as elves in Santa’s Workshop, select a child’s gift list, find the items on the list, wrap them and place them on Santa’s sleigh, ready for delivery.
