Ho Ho Howzabout that?!

Little Ealing create a cosy grotto as part of Christmas Bazaar which raised over £10k! Luxurious red and gold colours have been used to great effect, with stockings and glowing icicles as props.

Rogerstone PTA had a colourful one with elves-a-plenty to help out! We love the huge letter cutouts for the Santa's Grotto sign!

Burgess Hill Girls had a blast in their snowy grotto followed by a sparkly disco! The white sheets provide an instant snowy backdrop and lights, and green foliage create an outdoor wintry scene. Gather around Santa for storytime, then add a dash of sparkle to your outfits for a fun disco theme.

Maundene Primary PTA transformed their library into a magical space of colour and lights... storytime has never been so fun!

Springfield Primary had a beautiful little snowy enclave to meet the Big Man himself. We love how the lights twinkle through the sheer material and sparkly nets and colourful bulbs add to the magical effect.

Neilston PTA organised a cosy, quiet space away from the bright lights and noise, a gentler way to meet Mr Claus. A cute snowman and seasonal bunting add to the overall festive feel. What a lovely calming experience!

The elves at Jordanhill school provided a photo-opp to remember your visit to Santa's Grotto. Great idea, especially with festive props on hand.

The PTA at Woodland Stumps CPS set up a gorgeous snowy woodland grotto. Adding several Christmas trees created a lovely effect. Staging wrapped presents around the room - some for gifting, and some for show - adds to the festive atmosphere.
