Letter to santa

What to do with this activity?

Help your child to write a letter to Santa. Talk to them about what they want to say. At this age they may only make marks on the page, and you can interpret them for Santa. 

You can look up the An Post website to see where to send your letter and there's even a template to download. There are fun activities on the links too, including a crossword and a colouring-in page.


  • Why am I doing this?

    Learning to write should be fun. It’s important that children know that writing is a fun and useful. By fitting it into everyday activities, like drawing, writing notes and birthday cards children will get used to holding a pencil and learning to write properly.

  • How can I do more?

    Encourage your child to write and draw  - on outdoor walls with chalk or in the sand at the beach. Give them picture mazes or puzzles to fill out – join the dot puzzles are great for their hand eye coordination.
