Youngsters got to meet Santa in his spectacular winter wonderland themed grotto at the Kiddi Caru day nursery in Bedford.
Little ones also got to make festive decorations and ginger biscuits and try out get stuck in with snow themed messy play at Saturday’s Christmas event.
A raffle was held and a guess the sweets in the jar competition raised money for FACES, a good cause that supports families and children.
Manager at the nursery in Holme Street Hannah Buckley said: “Christmas is such a magical and wonderful time of year for children. Our Winter Wonderland is one of the highlights of our events calendar and everyone gets very excited. “It really was the perfect way to kick start our festive celebrations and we all had a fabulous day.”
