Writing a letter to Santa is a part many household’s holiday traditions. It is a fun and exciting activity for the kids, and can play a key role in helping “Santa” determine what to put on the shopping list – especially this year when they are warning of shipping delays and shortages on toys.
I love Christmas and am always get excited when I start to see the toy catalogues showing up in our mailbox. For me, this indicates that the holidays are on their way. I like seeing what new and interesting toys are out, and love watching what my kids get most excited about. The whole process brings back fond memories of wishfully thumbing through the Sears Wishbook as a child!
To make letter writing fun and easy for everyone, I have come up with a letter to Santa printable to download and use. For my design, I was inspired by doodle books and tried to make it open ended and easy for the younger kids to fill out and colour. There’s no right or wrong way to create your wish list – draw, write, or even glue in items cut straight from those aforementioned toy catalogues. Just make sure to include your name so Santa knows who to send a letter and gifts to!
