Why letters to Santa are a great idea

Having your kids write a simple letter to Santa is a great idea for several reasons:

  • You’ll quickly learn what your kids are hoping to receive for Christmas
  • Your kids can practice their writing skills – from spelling to handwriting to sentence construction
  • Your kids will learn or review how to address an envelope and send something in the mail 

In this age of texts, emails, and FaceTime, there are definitely fewer reasons to send physical letters. 

In fact, the United States Postal Service has seen a dramatic decline in mail volume since 2006.  

But that doesn’t mean that kids don’t need to know how to mail a letter! It’s still a valuable skill for adulthood and sending an annual letter to Santa Claus is a great practice!

Santa Letter Template Printables for kids ages 2-6

If you have young kids between the ages of 2-6, you’ll love our free Santa letter template printables that have specific prompts. 

Each letter has a line for your child to write the date, and his or her name and age.  (If your child isn’t writing much yet, that’s okay! Just ask them to fill in the blanks and you can do the writing!)

Following that, there are three lines for your child to write a few good things that they have done or blessings they’ve received over the past year. 

There’s also plenty of room for them to record their Christmas wish and sign their name. 

While many kids may want to write a giant list of toys and games that they want, this prompt gives them just enough room to write what they want most instead of focusing on all the overwhelming consumerism we often see during the holidays. 

There are eleven different Santa Claus letter designs to choose from, so here’s a closer look:

Where to mail your kid’s Santa Claus Letter

Once your kids have written their letters to Santa, it’s time to mail them to the North Pole!

Have your kids place their letters in a plain envelope and address it to: 

Santa Claus 

North Pole

(Since his house is the only one there, no real street address is needed!)

How to get a reply 

If you’d like your kids to receive a personalized reply from Santa Claus, you can definitely make it happen! 

USPS offers a special service called Greetings from the North Pole Post Office every year!

After reading your child’s letter to Santa, you can then write a letter to your kid and sign it, Love, Santa. 

Then you’ll need to place your child’s letter to Santa and the reply letter together in a single envelope. 

On the outside of this envelope, you’ll write your home address in the center. Then write “Santa Claus, North Pole” as the return address. (Be sure to put the proper postage on this envelope so it can make it back to your child!)

Then you’ll need to put this envelope into a larger envelope (we used a large manila envelope like this) and send it with proper postage to the Postmaster in Anchorage, Alaska. There the individual letter will be postmarked from the North Pole!

To get all of the details (including the address!), check out the U.S. Postal Service instructions right here!

If you have multiple children, it’s best to put their letters and replies into a separate envelope per child and then mail them all together in one larger manila envelope to the Postmaster in Alaska. 

Finally, your kids’ letters must be sent by December 7th so they can make it to Alaska, and back to your house before Christmas! 

Another great (and easier!) way to get a return letter from Santa is to try the awesome service offered by Real Santa Letters. Check out this article over at The Inspiration Edit to get all of the details!

Final thoughts about Santa letter template printables

Our kids absolutely love writing their special letters to Santa Claus, and they were thrilled to receive his reply in the mail! 

For them, this was one more magical moment of the Christmas season, and I was thrilled that it didn’t require tons of money or time to make it happen! 

You may consider turning your Santa Claus letter-writing event into a special holiday tradition by doing it every Thanksgiving evening or every December 1st.
