Everyone dreams of a white Christmas! These kids get one, but it’s not as idyllic as they’d hoped. Prankster Spencer wreaks havoc all around—toppling a snowman and then knocking Emily to the ground with an errant snowball. Her bag of cans scatters—cans she was hoping to recycle for money to buy her brother a Christmas present. When the neighborhood children learn that Emily’s family is lacking, they conspire to deliver Christmas to her house. They go caroling, singing “In the Bleak Midwinter,” then present the family with food, clothing and gifts. Even Spencer’s frosty heart begins to thaw. Any number of children may be carolers. Costumes are simply coats, hats and mittens. Bonus material includes a snow cream recipe and a paper snowflake craft. Includes creative ideas for transforming your stage into a winter wonderland. This focus on the “have nots” could be used to kick off a holiday food or clothing drive.
