It’s that time of year again for people who celebrate Christams and who have young children to start thinking about a wish list for Santa. In our house, from a very early age, I have encouraged my children to ask Santa for a surprise. This way, there is no pressure put on Santa to ensure that the children get a specific gift AND it also teaches them how exciting surprises can be. I also believe that it plays a part in all of the magic surrounding Christmas time.
The children make wish lists that we put on the side of the fridge so that friends and family members know what they are hoping for and we do write Santa a letter, but often it is a simple request for a surprise.
I realize that most people do not do it this way so this year, I have created a different type of Santa Letter for you to consider. By using this letter, your child can request one item that they really want, but they also have the opportunity to brainstorm some more practical items as well as something that they need.
