Letter to Santa

What to do with this activity?

Help your child to write a letter to Santa! You could first ask your child what they want to say. If your child is ready, help them to spell out each word and be there to help if you are needed.

Go to the An Post website to see how to post your letter. There are fun links on the An Post website too, including some pictures to colour in, and a Christmas wordsearch.

  • 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.
