i am on the ptfa and we are trying to come up with something magical for the kids this christmas.

we thought about getting real reindeers in but they are busy on the day of our christmas bizaar.

just wondered what your schools had done in the past?

Our school once got Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to come, as 'she' lives near us. Couldn't really do much else, no money!

Any parents with useful jobs? We have a fireman who brought the engine to school.

We had donkeys for our summer fair, and I hear there are camels nearby, I'd like to have them, but not much good or a Christmas fair.

I don't know, it might work- camels, wise men etc....lob a bit of tinsel on them!

We got the local xmas tree farm to bring lots of trees (lit) for the playground entrance to the christmas fair. They were all for sale and he delivered them to local homes.

Did the usual Santas grotto but with photos (framed) and charged a bit extra.

There are quite a few companies that supply outdoor ice rinks which you can hire to put on your playground.
