Free Printable Letter to Santa
When my son was a little boy we would always sit down together and write a letter to Santa Claus. We weren’t always timely, but we knew that the letter would get to the North Pole to Santa’s Grotto in the nick of time!
2020 has been a strange year and I’m feeling very nostalgic for Christmases past, and while my son is now nearly 22, I thought I would create some free printable letters that your kiddos can use!
I’ve got three different styles for you to choose from (everything is contained in one printable file), and I’ve also got seven, yes SEVEN different envelope templates.
Why seven you ask? Well, these days I can search online for Santa’s address, and it turns out he has depots all around the world where you can send your letters to.
It might be a little late to receive a reply, but I bet he reads every single letter that finds its way to his mailbox!
- You will find the download links further down this page surrounded by a purple box. Tap the purple download buttons to save the file(s) to your device.
- I’ve provided two paper sizes – A4 and US Letter (8.5″ x 11″) – use which size is appropriate for your printer.
As I said, there are three different letter styles, and the one(s) you use will depend on your child(ren)’s writing level. I have written a description of each below.
Blank Letter To Santa Printable
There are several sheets to this letter, as it will all depend on how much writing your kiddies want to write!
The letter has a red border with an image of Santa at the top, and a gingerbread train along the bottom. There are wide-ruled lines, and the words “Dear Santa” and “Love from” printed in place. You can see this letter in the picture above.
This printable is great for short letters, but if you want to write more, I’ve included a blank lined sheet, as well as a sheet that only says “Dear Santa” at the top and another one that says “Love from” at the bottom. This will enable you to combine sheets as needed.
Dear Santa Wish List Letter
Over the past few years, I’ve noticed the trend, when asking for gifts, to ask for something you want, need, to wear, read, etc. This is a great idea as it helps to focus on what you really would like to receive (even though we know kids want ALL the things at Christmas!).
The letter has a candy cane background with an image of Santa in the bottom right. You’ll find the example of this letter in the picture above.
The letter says: “Dear Santa, I’ve been thinking about what I would like for Christmas and have written my wish list!”
Below are the prompts to fill in which are: “Something I Want; Something I Need; Something to Wear; Something to Read; Something to Do; Something for My Family.
The want is the “big ticket gift”, the thing that they really, REALLY want. The need might be something useful like a hobby item or sports equipment.
Something to wear and read is self-explanatory. Something to do could be a puzzle, or game, or another giftable activity, and then something for my family might be a day out together or something they can do with their family.
You can use these prompts to guide your little ones when writing a letter using the blank template too.
Dear Santa “Fill in the Blanks” Letter
You can see an example of this letter, along with one of the envelopes in the picture above.
This letter is a guided, “fill in the blanks” style of letter, which has a Sanaa and Candy Cane background, and most of the letter is printed for you.
There is space left for your child(ren) to fill in their name, age, where they live, what they would really like, and other things on their Christmas wish list. There are also checkboxes to indicate if they’ve been nice, naughty (but of course, they can explain that!) or a bit of both!
Santa Letter Envelope Templates
I’m pretty sure if you post a letter to Santa Claus at The North Pole, it’ll find it’s way to the exact place it needs to be!
However, did you know there are other places you can send letters to Santa, depending on where you live in the world?
Santa is a busy guy, so he can’t reply to every single letter that he receives, but, I have heard, if you send it plenty of time you may get a letter back!
So, I’ve provided six pre-filled envelope templates, as seen in the picture above, and a blank envelope too for you to handwrite the address if you would like.
Across the bottom is a gingerbread train, and there is space for stamps in the top right, and an image of Santa on the flap of the envelope.
To assemble the envelopes, print out and cut carefully along the red lines. Score and fold the flaps – do the two sides first and fold in, followed by the bottom flap – stick these in place. Then when you’ve popped in your folded letter, seal the final flap down with a little glue and maybe some tape for extra security.
