Letter to Santa and a Printable

One of our advent calendar activities was to write a letter to Santa. I thought this would be fun since this is the first year my son can really write all of the alphabet by himself. I had to help him with the spelling, but I was so proud of him for writing it out himself. I knew he wouldn’t be able to write an entire letter so I created a fill in form that he could write in the important parts himself.

** UPDATE **

I created some new versions in 2012 of the printable letter to Santa for you to download: Printable Letters to Santa

And I am offering this printable Letter to Santa for you to use with your child!

My son worked really hard to write his letter.

Here is his finished letter.

Our local post office has a special mail box for Santa letters. My son was really excited to drop it off!

Does your child write a letter to Santa each year? I would love to see it!

  1. Such a fun idea! Thanks for sharing. I need to check our post office and see if they have a box like that… :)

  2. Hi Laura, what a delightful idea. I can just imagine the excitement the child feels when he/she is filling out the letter. We do have boxes around town to receive mail to Santa and apparently the kiddies do get a reply. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  3. So sweet! I love this idea! Thanks for sharing the template too! Would you please share this with my readers for Fun Stuff Fridays? http://www.toysinthedryer.com/2011/12/fun-stuff-fridays-4-3-weeks-long-for.html

  4. What a lovely idea, my son’s a little young at the moment but it’s certainly something I will save and use in the future.

    I love, love, love this! Thank you so much for offering this printable. I was so excited to see that it has a section for the children to share what they have done this year that they feel good about! And I adore the fact that your local post office has the “Letters to Santa” mailbox, how fun. I wish ours would =/ you’ve inspired me to suggest it. Have a wonderful Christmas this year.

    • You’re welcome! I am so grateful to be able to share with others. The post office is pretty cool. He even gets a letter back from “Santa” after we drop his letter off there. Have a Merry Christmas!

  6. Thanks for the letter! What a great idea! I like that there’s no “naughty or nice” check boxes – all kids are on the nice list!! Merry Christmas!

    • Thank you Erin! This has been a great way for my children to write their own letters (or have me help a little). We will be doing these again this year. Have a wonderful holiday!
