You’re on the Nice List!

If you’re little one has been good enough to make it onto Santa’s Nice list this year, these free printables might come in handy.  They’re everything we’ve got – old and new – that lets a child know he or she has been good enough, (or very nearly good enough), for Christmas gifts.

Snowman Soup

What is snowman soup?

Basically, it’s hot chocolate with a little extra oomph! You make a normal cup of hot cocoa, then add extra chocolate and white marshmallows – which are what give it its name. Some people also add extra milk or cream and just for fun, the whole thing is stirred up with a candy cane. It’s also becoming increasingly common for the raw ingredients for snowman soup to be put together as a gift for people to take home. A snowman soup gift set usually consists of a sachet of hot chocolate; some extra chocolate to stir in, such as buttons or stars or kisses; some white marshmallows; and a candy cane to stir it all up.

Snowman Soup Printables:

We’ve written a couple of snowman soup poems, both of which are available for you below. We find parents like to print one, roll it up, tie with a ribbon and place it alongside a steaming cup of snowman soup or with a snowman soup gift set. (A snowman soup gift set usually consists of a sachet of hot chocolate, some extra chocolate to stir in such as buttons, stars or kisses, some white marshmallows, and a candy cane to stir it all up.)

Christmas Party Printables

If you’re planning a Christmas party, you might like to browse our latest Christmas party printables.  You’ll find them below, along with a handful of old favourites.  They’re generally designed with children in mind, but there’s no reason they wouldn’t do for older gatherings as well.

Five Free Early Christmas Printables

Halloween is over and it’s nearly that time a year again!

Child Looking Forward to ChristmasSure, it’s an inner groan from those of us who dread the Christmas shopping but on the children front, it’s hard not to smile when you think of the upcoming magic.  We’ve been doing this long enough to know that right this minute there are children out there wondering if they’ve been good enough (and if not trying to do better rather hurriedly!) for a certain someone to bring presents this year.

It’s a great time, therefore, to encourage your little ones to use their imaginations…  Far up in the North Pole the Christmas clock is ticking; the elves have started to wrap up their presents, the reindeer have begun getting into shape for the long journey on Christmas Eve, and the Nice List is sparkling into life.  Will your little one’s name magically appear on it?

With this in mind and for all those who just can’t wait, here are our five favourite free early Christmas printables.  In our house, we use them to build excitement early on, so that by the time Christmas rolls around, our children can almost hear the sleigh bells.  We hope you and yours enjoy them too.

2 A letter from Santa to Read Before Christmas

3 Santa’s Magic Mirror Note

Santa Letter: Santa’s Magic Mirror Writing

This is a great note for anyone who wants to let their children know that a couple of Santa’s elves are popping by (in secret of course) to see if they’re being good.  Use it as early as you like to encourage good behaviour and for extra effect, print and fold a little envelope from Santa to put it in.

Your child will need a mirror to read this top-secret message – but that’s all part of the magic.
