I have created a letter from Santa printable for my lovely readers for FREE! I know you’ll love it and your kids will be so amazed at the magic directed to them straight from Santa. In addition to the letter, Santa sends them a random act of kindness task to fulfill everyday up until Christmas.
Why the Letter From Santa?
This year, 2020, has been a hard year on everyone. It’s hard to be super cheery and in the spirit this holiday season. Our kids have been whining about homework or not wanting to do, and when my husband’s child comes over all heck breaks loose between the two 9 year olds.
I want to instill in them the love of Jesus and raise children that are kind, generous, loving, and are the kind of people that are always willing to help others. Always. I DO NOT want our children acting the way many young people act today.
We’ve always taught our kids that Santa works with Jesus to spread love, salvation, and kindness. They believe that Jesus tells Santa each year which kids are naughty and nice. We want God above everything else in all circumstances. Therefore, the letter from Santa!
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.1 Corinthians 13:13
How the Letter from Santa works
The letterhead states it’s from the desk of Santa. It urges children to complete a kind task everyday, tells them to remember how lucky they are to have Jesus and their family, and reminds them to be on their best behavior. It is signed and delivered by their Elf on the Shelf; in our case his name is Elfis.
I have created a free printable for you to surprise your children with this Christmas season. Our kids were over the moon about it. They cannot wait each morning to get to our North Pole mailbox that leads to Santa directly. They put their Christmas lists in it, then they receive their random act of kindness daily from it. I bought it from Michael’s a few years ago. I have seen similar ones this year.
Three Letters from Santa to Choose From
You can choose which letter you want to use. I have left the name area blank so you can insert your child’s name in the “Dear so and so” area. The elf signature section will also be blank. Another option is that the body of the letter is blank. Finally the third letter is worded differently to include a broader range of children.
Print your letter, and the random acts of kindness sheets with their daily tasks. There is a green sheet with all the acts written in, and the red ones have blank places for you to fill in . This allows you to personalize the acts for you children. Print as many of those as you’d like, and fill in your RAOKs (random acts of kindness) in the blank areas.
Next leave the letter from Santa out for them to find. You can leave it in your Christmas mailbox, Christmas jar, your real mailbox, or even the freezer. Many people use their freezer and tell the kids it leads to the North Pole. Every morning you’ll leave another RAOK for them, and explain to them how to use each one.
I love the holiday season! It is so much fun with the kids. We can look back and remember the magic of Christmas we experienced as children ourselves! If you love Christmas, you will like these red buffalo check wreaths for cabinets. This candy cane wreath looks great on our walls!
Want more DIY Christmas decor? Here is an easy, budget friendly wall art piece. This illuminated Christmas wreath looks great with its light and the light of the Christmas tree. I love this Christmas snowflake and bow garland, and I hope you do too!
