Default Tough Question: Christmas Activities for Very Small People!

Hi there
I'm teaching at my sons' nursery, two groups of 8 ages 3 - 5. I am not an ESL teacher but have been doing quite well so far, the kids seem to like it, are definitely learning (so far I've done themes - colours, parts of the body). They are total beginners and the smallest ones barely even speak their native language with any degree of fluency so we really are at a very basic level. I would like to do some kind of play-let with them for Christmas (I'm in Italy, there are no issues with multi-culturalism here!) but am at a loss how to make it a) simple enough that they can remember what to do/ say and b) not have endless tears because the each one wants the other one's part!! It's a tough one, I know! Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try looking at Oxford University Press text books for young learners. Potato pals and Magic Time are good texts. They have good a good syllabus and there are ideas which you could use. I used to request sample books from their website for my school in Japan. If anything, it will give you some great ideas.
