It’s miserable being in the middle of a pandemic, but we’ve put together these printables which you might find useful while the world tries to cope with the coronavirus crisis. They’re meant to be light-hearted and to stop children feeling too anxious.
Has your child been feeling anxious about the pandemic? An award for bravery might help. It won’t take fear away of course, but it could help your little one feel proud of the way he or she is coping. A little bit of praise and acknowledgement is something we all need from time to time.
Covid Christmas Letters
Finally, if you want to print a magical Father Christmas letter to say well done for coping so well with Covid restrictions, you can find one here.
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.

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.
This cute certificate is a great reward for a child wh has been good all year. It’s such a great feeling to know the elves have noticed!
You can either print this certificate and add your child’s name or personalise it by downloading it as an editable PDF. If you’re in a rush and would rather not bother with a name at all, there’s a version without one here.
