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.
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.
- Christmas pencils (Or regular pencils covered with red tape.)
- Decorative Tape
- Colored Paper
- Toy Catalogs
- Glue Sticks
- 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.
- thank you
- Mrs. Clause
- sibling, cousin, and friends names
