Letters to Santa

What Do I Need?

  • Envelopes
  • Paper or holiday stationary
  • Markers, pens, and other decorating supplies


Set out paper, markers and decorations for your guests. Invite the children to write letters to Santa. If your guests are too young to write, have them draw pictures instead.

Letters to Santa can be more than simple wish lists. Ask the kids to write a short greeting to Santa and ask him how he has spent his year. They may want to add their favorite things about Christmas or what they have been doing during the past year.

When they are finished, let the children decorate envelopes for their letters. Collect the letters to send to Santa.

You may want to consider giving our to your guests' parents to slip into their mail later as a surprise for the children. Your guests will get a thrill out of receiving a reply Letter from Santa a few days after the party!
