Some special needs preschoolers got ready for the holidays with little time to spare.
Preschoolers from Belle Valley had a special kind of holiday party, at a bowling alley.
They showed off their skills at Eastway Lanes with teachers, parents and siblings, and even Santa joined in the fun.
Father Christmas brought handmade wooden toys for the boys and girls, made by local company "Santa's Helpers."
Bowling was a great way for the children with autism to socialize.
"I think it's great anytime you get these kids out in the community," said Kelly Kovacs, whose son Logan is in the class. "They can integrate and show that... they can be productive members of society."
This was the first time the preschool had their holiday party in the lanes.
