Free Printable Letter to Santa Template

One of the most exciting parts of Christmas as a child is coming up with your Santa list and writing a letter to Santa at the North Pole then desperately waiting for Christmas Day to see if you got what you wanted. This year I made my own letter to Santa template for my girls and I've added it here so you can download it and use it too.

Writing a letter to Santa is not only exciting, it's also a great way for children to practice their handwriting, helps with language development and is a fun way to build their hand strength. Even if you have younger children you can fill out the writing sections and then they can colour in the images at the bottom.

To fill in the letter to Santa, you will need:

  • Free printable template {download below}
  • White paper or cardstock
  • Pens, pencils or crayons
  • Envelope

1. Print out the free letter to Santa template onto white paper or cardstock. The printable is black and white except for the North Pole stamp and wax seal. You'll need to print the template in colour to have these print properly.

2. Get children to fill out the letter. If they can't read or write themselves yet ask them the questions and write the answers for them. Older children should be able to fill out the letter themselves.

3. Children can colour in the illustrations. The Christmas images at the bottom of the page have been left blank to allow children to colour them in or decorate if they want to.
