Our Mini-program this month was an assembly line of busy beaver workers all working together to make Candy Cane Reindeer for Santa to hand out at the Holiday Open House. Some were painting the faces on, some were taping the ears on, and some were making it stronger and some were adding the candy canes. Fun was had by all.
