I'm in kind of a rush, so this isn't well thought out, but here goes:
Assuming you have internet access (or time to find the info beforehand), could you do something on how fast Santa would have to travel? You could calculuate the surface area of land on our planet and figure out how fast he would have to travel to cover the whole planet in 24 hours.
Something along those lines: large numbers, lots of decimals, but with a Christmas twist??
Again, it's not well thought out, but I've got to get 3 kids ready for Church. Good luck!
