A letter to Santa template should make it easy for kids to write their wish list to Santa each year.
It’s one of the joys of Christmas that many kids love and can be a fun tradition or simply a one year activity that a family can do together.
Writing a letter to Santa Claus is also a great way to help kids reflect on their behavior over the past year and decide if they think they’ve been naughty or nice.
For parents, it’s an easy way to get a list of what your kids want for Christmas without having to directly ask them so you can keep the magic of Santa bringing gifts alive.
