Christmas Planning: Cards and Santa Letters


It's Christmas Planning Sunday!

Open up your Christmas Planner and begin by taking out your Santa letter template:




Whether it's you filling this out or your kids, this is a fun, easy way to write out your letter/s to Santa (If you need more than one, just print out extra from your planner document, or email me for a copy).

Just sit your kiddies down with some crayons / textas / pencils / pens and ask them to fill in the blanks! Be sure to sit with them and give them a hand if they ask. Make it a bit of a family moment with some Christmas music :)

Next up are your Christmas Cards. 

Last week you filled out your list:


Now it's time to set up your production line!

You will need: 
  • Your Christmas Card List
  • A pen
  • Christmas Cards
  • Envelopes
  • Stamps
  • 'Sender' stickers for the back of your envelopes (optional)
If the kids have finished their Santa Letters, now's the time to put them to work for you (added bonus: you can explain that helping Mum is an example of 'being nice' to go on Santa's list!)

Here are some jobs you can assign to your little ones:
  • Sticking stamps on envelopes
  • Putting cards in envelopes (make sure the envelope is addressed first!)
  • Sticking return address labels on back of envelopes
Then all you have to do is write and address them :)


My big tip for this page: You may be doing this task with family or friends, or you may be doing it all by yourself. Either way, enjoy it. Christmas is the time to reflect on happy moments with loved ones. Make your messages personal and thoughtful, and create a little Christmas spirit while you write them with some beautiful music or a Christmas movie playing on your TV in the background. It's a great way to relax for an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon xx

Congratulations - You have now completed this week's task and have taken another step towards a Beautifully Organised Christmas! 

Please visit again next Sunday for next week's task :)
