Keep your kids entertained this Christmas with a one-of-kind letter from Santa

Global pandemic or not, Santa Claus is comin' to town! Sure, Christmas this year will be unlike any other, but little boys and girls can sleep easy knowing doctors have given Santa the all-clear to travel across the world to deliver presents. So while you’re looking for fun ways to keep your kids entertained this Christmas season, why not surprise your kids with a special homemade Christmas paper filled with arts and crafts, recipes and good deeds – sent from jolly old Santa himself!

How to turn your paper into a magical letter from Santa

The premise is simple. At the time of writing, Santa’s getting ready for the busy time ahead: the elves are making toys, the reindeer are practising their sleigh runs, and Santa’s just completed his Naughty and Nice List. He assures the kids that he’s as excited for Christmas as they are! And though he can’t guarantee that he’ll be able to visit the kids at school this year, Santa promises that nothing will stop him from visiting their home on Christmas Eve, bearing lots of gifts and goodies!

But while Santa is getting his sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve, he’s added some fun and festive tasks for the children to complete in anticipation of his arrival. These include:

  • Christmas crafts for kids with fun decorations, garlands and wreaths, so that house is filled with holiday cheer when Santa visits.
  • Recipes for kids with the best Christmas cookies, candy canes and hot chocolate, so that Santa has something to snack on after his long journey.
  • Colouring pages of Christmas trees, snow men, elves and reindeer, for Santa to hang up in his workshop.
  • Advent calendar with lots of fun activities to spread the holiday cheer with others and show Santa just how good you can be: Day 1: Bake cookie so for your neighbours, Day 9: Donate old toys to a family centre, Day 16: Make Christmas cards for your teachers.

And last but not least, worksheets and templates for the kids’ letter to Santa allow the children to wish Santa a Merry Christmas and to let him know what’s on their wish list this year.

If the kids complete all the assignments and post their letter, Santa promises to do his best to deliver the presents on the list.
