‘Tis the season to do all the things. I love Christmas, truly, but sometimes I can get a bit overwhelmed with all the tradition crammed into a single month. I’ve learned to simplify and pick and choose which traditions to participate in yearly…and one thing I LOVE doing every Christmas is helping the kids write a letter to Santa! It’s easy and makes such a sweet memento to look at yearly.
Guess what? You can do it too…honestly! I’ve made it super simple for you—check it out!
How to Write a Letter to Santa
Of course, there are so many ways you can write a letter to Santa! One way is just to use any old paper and pen, and just let your kid get to work! I like to make things a bit more festive than plain lined notebook paper though, so I go a slightly different (equally easy!) route.
It doesn’t have to be a big production to come up with a pretty dear Santa letter. My trick is I always use a letter to Santa template—so much so, in fact, that I created this one for you all to use too! 🙂 For freeeeee!!

How to Mail a Letter to Santa
Did you know that you can actually mail a letter to Santa? I found out about this a few years ago, and just had to share! The USPS has a great program where you can mail a letter to Alaska, and receive one back in the mail from Santa himself. It’s really easy to do—plus, just imagine the look on your children’s faces when they run out to check the mail and see Santa has written back! So cute.
So…have I convinced you that you NEED to download this Santa letter template and give it to your kids to fill out? 🙂 Let me know!
