Santa where are you

What to do with this activity?

Watch the video above together and see where Santa pops up. Your child will be learning words like "under", "in" and "on". When you sing it yourself later, you can add other words like "behind" , "beside" and "inside".

Have fun over the Christmas playing hide and seek. Talk to your child about where you or they were hiding. For instance, "I was inside a press" or "under the blanket" " or "behind the curtain".

You might see lots of pictures of Santa in shops and on television, so sing and talk about where Santa is.  


  • Why am I doing this?

    Children’s ability to think and understand experiences develops by listening and speaking. As a child’s language becomes more complex so does their ability to understand more complex thoughts and ideas. The family is the child’s first source of language and learning and there are lots of everyday activities that occur in the home, which can help children’s language skills. Your child will get better at using words when they practice words and hear the sounds of words.

  • How can I do more?

    Just keep talking and listening. Normal routines provide lots of opportunities for conversation and for all the family to learn new things. If you are walking down a street, point out things you see and talk about them. Explain new words, show the colours or point out shapes. Ask your child what animals or buildings they like. There’s no end to what you can talk about together.
