Father Christmas is worried as Rudolph has a really bad cold and so his nose is not going to be very shiny and bright on Christmas Eve. This is especially worrying because the forecast for Christmas Eve is very foggy. Normally Rudolph’s nose lights the way and lets other aircraft see where the sleigh is and stops us having any collisions. He is hoping the children may be able to help him.

This activity can be used to develop children’s understanding of electricity, in particular, how to make components brighter and louder to help Father Christmas fly his sleigh safely on Christmas Eve. It develops the skill of Fair Testing and helps to correct a generally held misconception about cells and batteries.
