Looking for a FREE holiday themed activity to do with the kids tonight? Tonight only from 6 pm to 8 pm, take them to Profile Self Storage in neighboring Hooksett, NH for a free, life size Santa's Workshop display! The wonderful folks at Profile Self Storage have put together Santa's Workshop complete with live elves, Santa, and Mrs. Claus. The wait to get in the door may be a few minutes, so dress warmly in layers you can peel off once inside. The pathway leading to the entry is decorated and lit with Christmas lights providing several nice photo ops for parents as they wait with their excited children! Christmas music fills the air outside, creating a festive ambiance. The elves are actually making real wooden toys inside the workshop! Each child gets a free hand made wooden toy! If they like, children can help build the toy of their choice. There are cookies for the kids and coffee for adults, all free as well! Miss Outstanding Teen NH is signing autographs and giving away free Christmas themed temporary tattoos. The children can also do a free make and take craft of coloring a wooden ornament! As you exit the workshop the elves hand each child a goody bag with a juice box, bag of pretzles and a candy cane in it. There is a donation box at the exit, but no one directs you to put anything in, nor do they have it very well marked. This special offering of holiday happiness is well worth the wait in line, and a donation, if you are so moved!
