Ahh Christmas is just around the corner so my toddler and I have been working on her Santa Letter!
At 2.5 years old, she is just beginning to understand Christmas and all things Santa. It’s a stark contrast to last year where she couldn’t get away from the bearded man in red quick enough! Miss 2.5 obsessed with waving to him each time we pass Santa’s stall in the local shopping centre. But she’s always stumped when asked what she wants him to deliver on Christmas Eve!
I put together this cute little freebie for writing our letter to Santa this year. I’ve included lined and unlined versions to suit different abilities as well as a QLD Font and standard font.
The unlined version suited my toddler the best so I printed it off and we started chatting about Santa.
She decided that she wanted a bouncing castle from Santa! I was actually quite surprised as it was the first time she had actually answered me with something other than “I dun no.”
I wrote her answer then got her to draw a matching picture. Didn’t she do a beautiful job?!
