Letters to Santa Writing Basket

Oh, the magic of Christmas. Magic and playful learning opportunities, of course! There is candy cane science, gingerbread mathflying reindeer stem activity, and lots of Christmas reading.

Writing a letter to Santa is another great chance to squeeze in a little extra learning. By creating a Letter to Santa writing basket, you can give your kids a reason to spend a little extra time writing. Plus, these letters will make fantastic keepsakes. Shhh… you don’t have to let them know that part.

Such a simple idea to make the letter to Santa even more fun!

Letters to Santa Writing Basket

Your letter-writing basket does not need to be fancy. Round up what you have at home already, or buy a few little extras from the dollar section. Displaying it in a pretty way will be what draws the kids in.

  • Paper
  • Envelopes
  • Christmas pencils (Or regular pencils covered with red tape.)
  • Stickers
  • Decorative Tape
  • Colored Paper
  • Toy Catalogs
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Old Cards (Every year I save the Christmas cards I get. They are perfect for finding beautiful holiday pictures to use in art.)

BONUS – Make some helpful word cards. Think of words that your little one will want to include.
