By Simpson | Follow twitter | Updated on April 18, 2022

Well, it’s nearly that time of year again. The air has turned cold, the nights are long, the days are short, there are festive decorations and bright fairy lights in homes, towns, and cities all across the long, which can mean only one thing – Christmas is coming.

Whether you’re a fan of the holidays or not, it’s safe to say that kids most definitely are, and if you’re looking for ways of bringing some magic into their lives, why not help them write a letter to Santa this year?

Have Them Write Their Name and Address 

Another great tip for helping your kids to write a letter to Santa is to have them write down their name and address on the letter properly, just like they would a real letter. Use some calligraphy templates to make the written letter more beautiful and special. 

This strategy is great because it helps your kids to practice their writing and spelling, plus it gives the letter more of an official look and it is good practice for when they grow older and have to write letters and post them themselves.

Get Them to Ask for Presents in Terms of Importance

We know that gifts cost money, but young children don’t and the last thing we want is for them to be disappointed come Christmas morning by not getting the gift that they wanted the most.

When filling out their letter to Santa template, get them to write a list starting from the top, of gifts they would like the most down to the least. For that purpose, you can download a secret Santa wish list template for them to write easier.  

Basically, the first gift that they ask for at the top of the page is the one which they will want the most, so you can then head out there, or jump online, and do your best to prioritize that gift over the others.
