Letter from Santa Printable
It’s a little sad for me that Caleb (8) no longer believes in Santa. It’s even more sad that he stopped believing in Kindergarten! I was horrified and felt he really got robbed of Christmas as a child. I really don’t want Davis and Beckham to have that same experience, so I’ve been brainstorming ways to keep Santa real for as long as possible.
I decided that I wanted the kids to each get a letter from Santa in their stockings this year. To make it more believable though I sent out an e-mail to their teachers at school, primary teachers, Grandparents, and my friends, asking them if they saw one of my kids do something nice to please e-mail me back. That way there would be things in the letter that Mom and Dad wouldn’t know about.
Next I made official North Pole Stationary!
I chose the plain background for my boys letters and then printed it on a really nice parchment paper. I am so excited for them to read these! Just like with the Self-esteem books, I feel the best gift we can give our children comes from a feeling inside and not objects. Even though Caleb will know its from us, I know it will make him really happy to know that we hear the good things he does when hes not at home.
BTW its really fun to write a letter as Santa! Here is my letter to Beckham if you need an example to get your ideas going.
Then I rolled it up, tied it with a ribbon, and they are ready to be delivered in their stockings Christmas eve! I am going to start a binder that I keep all the past letters from Santa in so they can ready them every year.
If you want to write a letter from Santa for your child you can download the printable. If you don’t have editing software like Photoshop, don’t forget that there is free software you can use at Aviary.

*Pam asked what the carrot wreath was I talked about in my letter to Beckham. I saw it on How Does She and we have one in our freezer just waiting to be put out on Christmas Eve.
