You probably have a ton of fun things you want to do with your kids during the Christmas season. There are Christmas crafts to create. And holiday cookies to bake. And don’t forget writing letters to Santa!
Writing a letter to Santa is a fun holiday activity that kids love! And it has some benefits for you too!
If your kids are like mine, they’ve probably mentioned a ton of things they want for Christmas in the last 11 months or so. Their Santa letter can help them (and you!) figure out what they want the most for Christmas this year.
Letters to Santa also make fun keepsakes if you tuck them away where your kids can’t find them before they know “the truth about Santa”.
And this year a letter to Santa might be even more important for your kids if in-person visits to Santa aren’t safe due to health concerns.
As much fun as writing a letter to Santa is, sometimes kids need a little inspiration to get started. That’s where a Santa letter template can be so helpful!
This fill-in-the-blank style template is perfect for beginning writers to easily write down their wishlist.
And for children too young to write, mom or dad can help fill in the blanks. In either case, the picture box will be your child’s own work. And a special gift for Santa.
How to Use this Blank Santa Letter Template for Kids
The free printable Santa letter template is available in my resource library here. In the resource library you simply click on the link for the template. And then you can print as many copies as you need.
The Santa letter printable prints out on regular letter size paper (8.5 x 11). I suggest printing in color for maximum cuteness.
For the most fun results, let your child use their own words to fill in their question for Santa. And of course their wishlist.
If your child is not yet a writer, ask them what they want to say and help them fill it in! And then they can take over when it’s time to draw Santa a picture.
I wanted a Santa letter that reads more like a real letter than a list of demands. And it’s a fun way to show kids about writing letters.
Once your kids are done filling out their Santa letter, it’s time to get it in the mail! Wondering if your child can really send their letter to Santa? They totally can! The post office has a program for that.

How to Send a Letter to Santa Claus
The post office does something really cool at Christmas time. With the help of the USPS you can send your child’s letter to the North Pole. And receive a reply from Santa Claus with a North Pole postmark.
Won’t your child be impressed!
For full details on how to get your child a letter from Santa post marked from the North Pole, click this link here.
The directions as of this post being written are to send your child’s letter to Santa in an envelope addressed to Santa Claus, North Pole.
Then YOU write a personalized response to your child from Santa. (For help writing your letter from Santa to your child, check out my post with a free printable letter FROM SANTA here).
Insert both your child’s letter to Santa AND the letter FROM Santa into one envelope and address it to your child with a return address of “Santa Claus, North Pole”. Make sure you put a stamp on this envelope.
Place your completed envelope into a larger envelope and address it:
NORTH POLE POSTMARK
4141 POSTMARK DR
ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
Add postage and put it in the mail. Letters need to be mailed to the North Pole in Alaska by December 7th to make sure they get there in time.
I strongly encourage you to check the post office website here before mailing your child’s letter because the rules have changed over the years. And I don’t want to lead you astray if my directions have become outdated.
Other Ideas for Mailing Your Child’s Santa Letter
If you’re too late to mail your child’s letter to the North Pole, consider having your child hand Santa their letter during an in-person visit if possible.
Or depending on the age of your child, engage in some covert operations as far as “mailing” their letter and grab it out of your mailbox before it goes anywhere. Or have a friend or family member do it.
Then mail your child a reply either through the post office or by sticking a letter to your child from Santa in your stack of mail and giving it to them.
I’m open to other ideas. If you have a good one, please share in the comments!
