How To Use The Santa Letter & Craft Activity:
If you are using the black and white craft template, your kids will color the parts of Santa including his head, hat, beard, arms, legs, and boots.
After coloring all of the pieces, your children will cut out the parts of Santa and glue them onto a pocket envelope.
While the glue dries, your kids will write their letter to Santa. There are four different letter templates so it is easy to differentiate this activity for your children.
After writing their letter to Santa, your kids will fold it and put it in the pocket envelope.
There are also envelope templates included if your children would rather use one to send their letter to Santa. To assemble the envelope, your kids will cut it out and fold the tabs. They will then glue the two rectangle tabs to attach the front and back of the envelope together.
After putting their letter in the envelope, they can fold the tab over and tape it. Your kids can then address the letter to Santa and send it off to the North Pole.
This Santa Letter & Craft is a fun way for your kids to work on writing and fine motor skills this holiday season!
