HITCHCOCK COUNTY, Neb. (STORYFUL)- A teacher from Hitchcock County, Nebraska, spent months collecting milk jugs from her students so that she could create a very special “winter wonderland” for them ahead of the festive season.

Footage by Jennifer Baker, shared to Facebook on Dec. 4, shows the finished product at Hitchcock County Elementary School.

The scene, which was built by Baker and three others, features snow, penguins, Christmas trees and lights, and is topped off by a huge igloo made from the 486 milk jugs that were donated by the children.

“We are a high poverty school, so for many of the kids, it is a very amazing thing to see this kind of Christmas magic. My hope is that it will bring them and all that see it a wonderful Christmas feeling,” Baker told Storyful.
