Kid's Corner - Dear Santa! and A Giveaway

With Thanksgiving around the corner, my kids are really starting to think about Christmas, especially what they want for Christmas. One of the most important things for a child to do around Christmas is to either see Santa or write him a letter or both! My youngest was lucky enough to visit with Santa a couple of weeks ago, but was devastated a couple of days later when he realized that he forgot to tell Santa that there was a video game that he wanted for Christmas. I surprised him with a little Dear Santa kit a few days later and he was able to write his letter to Santa!

These kits are really easy to make and is also a nice little gift as well.

Supplies: Blank Note cards and envelopes

Christmas Stickers

Christmas Pencils



Gather all supplies and bundle together with ribbon and they are ready to give. You might consider adding a little tag with the recipient's name on it or instructions as to what it is for if you are giving it as a gift. The wonderful thing about these is that they also can be used to send out thank you notes after Christmas and since they are already stamped, all little ones need is a little encouragement and mom or dad's help addressing the envelope.

This is also very versatile and stickers and pencils, or you can add markers, crayons, glue, glitter, etc. that can be changed out depending on the Holiday or for a Birthday.
