Children's Activities

Dear Little Festive Friends,

When you come to get your Christmas Tree from us, ask your grown up to find one of the Thrift Wood Christmas team. If you ask them nicely, they will give you a very magical goodie bag.

Inside your goodie bag will be a very special postcard to post here in the wood, some reindeer food with extra special sparkles and magical dream dust hidden inside it, and if you are very lucky, you may even find a gold coin in your bag too.

Team Thrift Wood

Dear Boys and Girls,

If you come to Thrift Wood to get your Christmas tree or some decorations for your home, we can help you get some special Christmas magic tingling from your head down to your toes.

Write a letter to Father Christmas

Fill in your postcard, and post it in our magic Christmas tree. Then ring our big bell to let the woodland fairies know, they will put your letter in the magic fire, and the smoke will deliver it to Father Christmas in Lapland.

Reindeer Food

Father Christmas’s reindeers work very hard on Christmas Eve, pulling the toy-filled sleigh through the sky. Rudolph and the other reindeer need lots of food and magic to help them on their way. The Thrift Wood Christmas Team have been busy mixing and adding lots of magic to our reindeer food bags for you to put out on Christmas Eve, for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen - and Rudolph, of course.

Elf Cottage

And while your grownups are looking for the BEST tree that we have, why don’t you have a play in Elf Cottage or decorate the Elf’s big Christmas tree?

We’re looking forward to seeing you, and sharing the magic of Christmas in the woods!
