Christmas is 25 days away, and if you want to start the holiday off on a magical note for your kids, consider having them write to Santa!
Travis and I sat down with paper and markers (in red and green of course), and talked through his list.
I helped him sound out and spell each item, which was great handwriting practice, too.
His list included current favorites like Star Wars figures (Boba Fett, Kylo Ren) and a winter vest.
To make the letter truly special requires a little parental trickery. Write back a letter from Santa in response to your child. I used markers to disguise my handwriting.
Now seal both letters in an envelope addressed to your child, and mark the return address as “Santa, The North Pole.” Don’t forget a stamp! Place this inside a larger envelope, addressed to the following:
NORTH POLE POSTMARK
4141 POSTMARK DR
ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
In return, you’ll receive a true North Pole postmark on the return letter from “Santa”. USPS recommends mailing by December 7. So make those lists and check them twice!
