With Christmas just around the corner now is the a great time to help your children make their Christmas Wish List! Father Christmas will soon be coming down the chimney to deliver presents to all well behaved girls and boys, so here are a few ideas to help you and your children write a list that Father Christmas wont forget.
Get ideas from the free Christmas catalogues or online shopping websites. Children will also love to visit shops with exciting Christmas displays, most shops have them this time of year. There are hundreds of adverts on TV enticing children to say 'I want one of these' so make a note when they express an interest in something.
Get creative with glitter and glue and let you child put his/her personal touch to the list that you've helped them to write. Perhaps they could draw pictures of the presents that they'd love the most. If glitter and glue isnít for you there are plenty of colourful and creative templates that you can download from sites such as Pinterest for them to fill out and colour in.
Deliver the list. If Father Christmas is coming to town before the big day your child can hand deliver his/her list personally. If not, you can send the letter to the North Pole yourselves but don't forget to take a copy first! Royal Mail has a FREE mailback service which sends your child back a personalised letter after they have written to Father Christmas. The letter does need to be sent to an exact address, which is:
To get a reply, the letter needs to arrive by Friday 6th December.
