The letter is sized to fit on a standard 8.5×11 inch piece of paper. You can use any printer paper if you are mailing it normal paper is likely best but if you want to leave it out for Santa then cardstock is the best option.
Once you have the letter printed off make a whole day out of filling it out. You can read books about Santa and watch a Christmas movie or two. It’s also a great time to bake some cookies and drink hot chocolate.
Sending Your Letter to Santa
Santa and his elves are waiting for your child’s letter and ready to send one back. All you need to do is send your letter with a legible return address to:Santa Claus
PO Box 1
Santa Claus, IN 47579
Letters received by December 20, 2020, will receive a response from Santa and the elves. The earlier the letters are sent the better. You can learn more at Write to Santa.
USPS is also helping Santa write back to kids and is another way you can reach Santa. Visit the USPS website to learn more about this option for a letter from Santa. For this option, letters need to be sent no later than December 7th.
This is a fun tradition to start with your kids and you may even want to keep a copy of their letters to look back on in the future. If you don’t want the extra clutter just take a photo or scan the letter to save. I love this method of saving special papers without all the clutter.
