Weekly Wrap-Up: A Book About Santa and Toys

We spent this week doing some crafts, reading some stories and counting down the days until Christmas.  Georgie was playing with some fun Christmas foam stickers I bought from Oriental Trading and decided to write a story.  He did the actual writing of the first page himself (with some help on the spelling).  This is way more writing than he usually will do so I wasn’t too surprised when he asked to dictate the rest of the book for me to write.   I wrote down exactly what he said word for word.
This is A Book About Santa and Toys by Georgie.
Snowflakes were falling from the sky carrying a stocking when Santa Claus was coming on a train.
But a big storm was coming this way so Santa hopped on a airplane to see what was causing all the trouble.   (this page didn’t make it into the book because there was no airplane stickers but he did write it so here it is)

Up Santa goes saving the jack-in-a-box stuck on a cloud.  Then Santa and the jack-in-the-box went down, down, down.  The End. (not really)
So Santa decided to fight the evil big dolls and he had help.  The good guys won.  And Santa was one of them.  So the good guys decided to have a party.
But then the 3 bad guys came but the toys came to help Santa Claus by getting back his train.  He didn’t think of what he could do but then he drove the train over the 3 bad guys. (????)
Then a magician came and disappeared.  Before that he made Santa and his toy friends that were there float in mid-air.  Thanks to that magician.  The End.
I don’t think creative writing is ever going to be a problem for this kid.

  1. I love this!! I like the arrows to show where Santa is going. =p

  2. That's wonderful! It is always so amazing to see a child's mind at work.

  3. Excellent adventure. Be sure to put that with the other Christmas books.

  4. Fun fun! I have a 5 1/2 year old who recently wanted to do some stories too (I type while he dictates) and of course his had "bad guys" in it too. Little boys must think similarly in that way! Merry Christmas!

  5. Awwww, such a cute story! You really should save this and bring it out each Christmas! Merry Christmas!

  6. Wonderful story - thanks for sharing it!

  7. Thank you and Merry Christmas to everyone.
