Kids are always curious about Santa and how exactly he gets to deliver all those gifts in one night. To top it all, the question that pops up often is: How can Santa slip through chimney with his big belly? He must get stuck!

Stuck Santa Christmas Hand Painting Idea For Kids
- Santa Roof Top Background (Personal & Classroom Use Only, Commercial Use/Modifying PDF Not Allowed)
- red paint
- brown paint
- white paint
- googly eye
Paint the child's hand red – leaving out the thumb. Make an imprint on the paper with the heel of the hand at the bottom of the chimney and the fingers making a 'V' shape.
Paint the child's hand brown. Make an upside down hand. Use a red finger print for the reindeer's nose.
Add lots of white fingerprints for the snow on the roof.
To finish the reindeer, add a google eye, a smile and antlers.
Make Santa look like he's stuck in the chimney, by adding black boots and a belt.
Santa's Stuck Children's Book
"This playful picture book answers the age-old question: Just how does Santa shimmy up and down chimneys? Not very easily sometimes! When the rotund fellow with a sweet tooth overdoes it on the snacks, he gets stuck inside a chimney. The reindeer on the roof try pulling him out, to no avail. A dog, a cat, and some kittens try pushing from below, with no luck. It takes a tiny, ingenious mouse to come up with the way to POP! Santa out so that Christmas can go on. Good show—ho, ho, ho!"
