Today we wrote a letter to Santa. So far Lovey really isn’t very interested in Santa, and we don’t really try to make him the focus of Christmas. However, I knew she would love writing a letter. I just wasn’t sure what she might include in the letter, and I didn’t give her much direction. She told me what to write, and then she started drawing a picture. About half-way through she decided she was done, so for now the picture is sitting at her craft table waiting to be finished later.
I like this Pinterest-inspired idea of keeping a kids’ Christmas list inside an ornament, so I scanned her letter to Santa. Although you should know that none of the items she mentioned in her letter are ones that she has mentioned in our previous talks about Christmas gifts. I scaled the letter down and printed a copy small enough to fit into her Christmas ornament from Advent Day 2. When she is finished I will do the same with her picture, and both will be placed inside the ornament.
If you are interested in your child receiving a letter back from Santa (that you write) with the North Pole postmark, you can find the details in this USPS press release. I am not sure yet if we will be doing this.
Do your kids write letters to Santa? Have you ever had them receive a letter postmarked from the North Pole?
