Pre-Opening Activity

A Visit From Saint Nicholas


Provide sets of four cards. On each card, write one of the first four lines of the famous Christmas poem:

‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house
Not a creature was sitting, not even a mouse.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Suspend the cards with a string around the necks of all the players. On signal, everyone is to scramble about seeking the other three lines of the poem. The first four to line up in the proper sequence are the winners.
