Santa's Workshop

Children (ages 2 through 11) build wooden toys with Santa’s elves. Each workstation is outfitted with drills, power screwdrivers and of course hammer and nails. The children then move from station to station to paint and glitter their new toy. Click here to watch a video about the creation of the toy workshop at Farmpark and the magical experience of building toys with dancing elves.
