I teach an after school group of twelve 5-7 year olds. I want the class to sponsor a needy child from the Angel Tree. I did this last year with the older kids and it was wonderful. After I explain that this child is needy, what do I say if they ask why Santa doesn't bring them these things? I don't want to go into the whole Santa thing with them. This is such a great experience though and I think it helps to teach them compassion, and sharng. I don't want to give it up. Any ideas?
