Write to Santa

Did you know Canada.. we've been busy making our Santa list this weekend, make sure your little ones get started on that too. Thanks to volunteers at Canada Post, every child that sends a letter into Santa will get a reply back (you MUST include return address of course).  We've been doing this every year for the boys, always exciting, but even more so this year now that they really "get" the magic of Santa and can write their own names.

To send your list to Santa, use address:
Santa Claus
North Pole
H0H 0H0
Canada

This was a perfect opportunity to work on writing our names, colouring and chatting about what the boys really want for Christmas, not just everything in the store.  When decorating make sure not to use glitter glue though, not good for Santa's machines. ;-)



You can also visit Santa's Corner online, a fun site with videos, games and you can send Santa an email too!  We really like the snowman game, the boys are very excited for snow to build our own snowman soon.

Get working on those special Santa letters today so Santa and his elves have time to reply!
