Day 1 of our Adventure Series
December 1st has arrived and I’m bringing back our advent adventures. Just a week ago, I posted advent activities for the holiday season. Here are the categories we chose: Family Holiday Activity and Workout Challenge. Introducing our newest challenge: Elf in Training Kindness Campaign!
Day 1 Tasks:
Family Holiday Activity
Write a Letter To Santa
There are numerous websites advertising letters from Santa. The one I like to use is the PNP (Portable North Pole) app. For the past several years I cultivated the magic of Christmas with a free, personalized video from Santa. Last Christmas, I downloaded the free app that has both a parent and child corner. This season I decided, to pay a little extra to make three unique videos on for each child. Each one is about 5 mins long, creative and enchanting. It was worth it to see my three excited and beaming as Santa send hello to them, took them on a tour a different parts of the North Pole and demonstrated how each were on the nice list. In all three videos I was able to provide their names, upload photos and pick out a task each had diligently worked on this year. The videos are unique, creative and personal all together making for a magical experience.
This afternoon, when the kids return from school, we are going to each write a letter to Santa, (my husband and I included). In their message, I ask that they cover the following details:
- The Date
- Greeting to Santa
- A kind word about Santa and his mission
- Something for which they are thankful
- One or more question(s) about the North Pole
Click here for a FREE PDF of Santa’s Letter I created. We will send them off in the mail tomorrow. The Package From Santa website listed Santa’s official mailing address as the following:
325 S. Santa Claus Lane
North Pole, Alaska 99705
From this website, you can also have Santa write to your kids for free. There is a charge to upgrade for a letter directly sent to your children. However, I just choose to have the letters emailed to me. I’ll print, seal them in an envelope and a little glitter and place in their stockings.
