Meri Kirihimete: Marlborough kindy prepares te reo float for Christmas parade – Stuff

The Picton Kindergarten float for the town’s Christmas parade doesn’t happen overnight … it takes weeks to pull together.

And this year, the theme of their float is based around a book and song in te reo Māori which counts down the number of sleeps until Santa comes.

It’s something 4-year-old Finley Thomson is looking forward to, as well as seeing Santa and looking at all the decorated trees.

Picton Kindergarten teacher Amee Hall said participating in the parade was something the children, and parents, looked forward to every year.
