After 100 years of wearing the same old red suit. Santa is ready for a change.  We designed a new suit for Santa. We had lots of different colours of suits. Our designs had magic dust in the boots to use when Santa gets too tired, a magic belt and a colourful feather to wave when someone sees Santa in their house to send them back to sleep. We really enjoyed talking about our designs.
