Tots raise a glass to fun in a puddle.

BOYS and girls at a Kenilworth nursery and junior school had a triple helping of fun getting into the Christmas spirit.

Lack of snow didn't stop Santa from visiting St Joseph's School Christmas fair, in Crackley Hall at the school's Coventry Road site, as he abandoned his familiar sleigh in favour of a micro scooter.

Nursery pupils also made their own Christmas cards during a visit to Brandon Marsh Nature Centre, near Coventry, and concocted a nature trail punch of puddle water, leaves and twigs.

Education officer Lorraine Kenny led a festive fun session for the children, which included a sensory nature trail, where they attached leaves and twigs to a sticky Christmas card in the shape of a snowman.

Sarah Oakley, education officer, said: "Very early on we became fully- booked for our festive fun sessions. It's an opportunity for children to go outside and experience the wonders of wintertime in the countryside."

The seasonal fun ended for pupils with their performance of an end-of- term play, The Elves and the Shoemaker.
