Christmas is the best time of the year.

Customized Letters From Santa
It’s funny how kids’ perception of Santa changes over the years.
As babies they have no idea what’s going, then for 1-2 years they’re filled with terror. The next year they can’t wait to see Santa and talk about all the toys on their wish list.
Once kids are in that last stage of wonder, it’s so fun to be around them. They’re excited about every holiday activity you do.
They beg for another bag of candy to decorate the gingerbread houses. They can’t wait to put up the Christmas tree and ornaments. They want to look at Christmas lights in every neighborhood. Three times. A Day.
Having a young kid during Christmas is one of my favorite parts of being a parent! This is why we created these editable letters from Santa.
To help your kids believe in Santa even longer.
To establish cherished family memories.
To preserve their youthful innocence.
If you want the same things for your children, then you’ll love these Christmas printables.
Santa Claus Nice List Certificate
First, is the nice list certificate. It’s easy to edit with Adobe Reader. All you need to do is enter your child’s name on the line and you’re all set!
Santa Warning Letter
Second, is the naughty list warning letter from Santa and his elves.
We haven’t personally had to use this one with our kids yet, but last year we came this close to slipping it in the mail!
We can certainly imagine kids who receive this little note would straighten up quickly.
To customize this printable, all you need to do is enter your child’s name on the red dotted line and then add the date at the bottom.
Customized Letter From Santa
Finally, there’s the customized letter from Santa.
This letter is the one our kids had the most fun receiving! They loved reading it and seeing Santa knew all about them and praised them for all the good things they had done during the year.
Santa’s letter was also my personal favorite because it was such a fun way to encourage our kids to be kind to each other and try their best at school.
I may or may not have abused my power by adding in that Santa is quite happy when brothers get along and play nicely together 😉
Making these and “sending” them to my boys was so much fun that I can’t wait to do it again next year.
If you want to keep your kids’ innocence and believing spirit for just a little bit longer, these letters from Santa will help bring the magic to your home!
