Can you feel the Christmas magic yet? No doubt the kids can and are getting ready to write that all-important letter to Santa and Christmas list! With this in mind, we thought we’d put together a quick post to highlight all our free letter to Santa and Christmas list templates. So, if your child is writing his or her Christmas correspondence to that magical man at the North pole this week, perhaps these will come in handy:
Need a Reply?
If your child has written a letter and/or Christmas list, or drawn a picture for Santa, you may be looking for a reply. Obviously, we have to keep it general, but we’ve created the following resources to help you out:
If the Christmas clock is ticking and your little one is dragging his or her heels about getting that Christmas List written, this little reminder from Father Christmas may just do the trick. Good luck and have a very merry Christmas – ho, ho, ho! x
Santa Claus or Father Christmas?
Many of our letters to Santa Claus are also available as letters to Father Christmas. This is because we know that people in different families and places call him by different names. In the UK, we find the preference is for “Father Christmas”, in the USA it’s “Santa”.
We’re sorry that we haven’t managed to provide two versions of absolutely every resource – we’ve had a lot to do and have been short on time. However, if there is an alternative version of any of our letters, you’ll be able to see a note and a link underneath it.
Although dwindling in popularity compared to Halloween, the 5th of November is still celebrated in many parts of the UK. We’ve created a handful of printables with this in mind and whether it’s “Bonfire Night”, “Guy Fawkes Night” or “Fireworks Night” in your house, we hope you find them useful.
Remember, Remember Scrolls
If you’re looking for a printable version of that famous Guy Fawkes Night chant, ours are below. They’re a great way to add to the 5th of November decorations.
We hope you have a roaring good time on Bonfire Night, but remember to be careful… fireworks can be as hot as dragon’s breath, and you wouldn’t go too near a dragon, would you? x
You may think it’s a way off but before you know it, it’ll be that time a year again!
Sure, 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.
If your child has been good, it’s never too early to let them know they’re on the nice list! As well as being a printable image you can write on, this one also comes as an editable PDF, which means you can just hit the appropriate button (underneath the main image) and type straight onto the certificate.
Not quite what you’re looking for? Check out the rest of our Christmas certificates here.
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.
With Christmas over and the new year at the starting block, we thought we’d list a few of our favourite printables for January. Some are new and some are old favourites but our site is getting so big that we thought a little list might help make sure there’s no mid-winter magic you’ve missed.
Happy new year! We hope 2021 brings much joy and magic to you and your little ones.
January is always a quiet month for our site but for those of you who have taken the time to pop by (thanks!), we’ve collected together what we think are the most useful printables for this month. Many are old favourites but there are one or two new resources as well. Just scroll down and you’ll find them below…
January can be a good time to get the family active again after all those Christmas goodies, so these certificates might come in useful too:
Oh… and don’t forget it’s Burns Night on Jan 25th!
Finally, there’s always time for fairy messages, no matter what the time of year. Whether you’re writing your own or using some of our fairy notes and certificates, here are a few of our favourites:
And for anyone looking for a relaxing (not to mention decorative!) start to the new year, here’s a bit more printable colouring:
This year, we’ve created a few extra letters from Father Christmas to try and help you spread a bit of magic after such a hard year. They’re all free to print for your personal use. You can find them on the Christmas section of our site. Have a lovely Christmas and a happy new year. x
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.
Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to write those thank you notes. For very young children or those who are easily bored, it can help to have a printable note to fill in. If that’s what you’re looking for, ours are below. Good luck and all the best for the new year!
Of course, you might be looking for some blank notepaper instead, so that your little one can write their own thank you message from beginning to end. If that’s the case, you might find this printable notepaper useful:
