Here is the chimney (make a fist with thumb inside)

Here is the top (place palm of other hand over the top of fist)

Open the lid (remove hand on top)

And out Santa pops (pop up thumb).

I have a little Santa puppet that I put on my thumb for this one, but kids enjoy even with just the thumb “pretending” to be Santa!
