Day 24: Rolling Santas

Rolling Santa Pysselbolaget 1 Today is Christmas Eve and, according to some children, the longest day of the year. In Sweden Santa Claus arrives this evening to personally hand out the gifts to children. I think it must have something to do with the fact that we live really close to the polar circle. Patience, candy and entertainment is the only way to live through a day like this. Big craft projects can be difficult to manage, but a tiny craft might do the trick.Rolling Santa Pysselbolaget 2

You need to download the templates here. You also need scissors, marbles and tape.Rolling Santa Pysselbolaget 3

1. First cut out the template and fold it according to the picture.Rolling Santa Pysselbolaget 4

2. Fold the body and fix it with tape. Next fix one side with tape. Fill the santa with two marbles and fix the other side with tape as well. Done!

Place the Santa on a slightly sloping surface and give it a shove. Make sure the surface is not too smooth or the Santa will slide rather than roll down the surface.Rolling Santa Pysselbolaget 6

The Santa templates are available in two versions. The one with Santas in color is available here. Rolling Santa Pysselbolaget 7

Freja prefered to draw her own, the template with lines only can be downloaded  here. TCCS_banner_small_eng_new
