Thanks Elf on the Shelf for sponsoring my post about Letters To Santa. All opinions are my own.
Each year since 2012 our Scout Elf Ralphie has been visiting each holiday season. The boys really enjoy waking up each morning to see where Ralphie landed after his trip to the North Pole reporting whether they have been good or bad to Santa. Here are a few of my favorite photos I took of Ralphie over the years. Ralphie has even delivered letters to Santa a couple times for the boys.

I am super excited because this year Elf on the Shelf came out with a Letters To Santa kit. With the help of their Scout Elves, kids can quickly get their letters to Santa! Using Mrs. Claus’ Magic Press and Santa’s Special PaperTM, shrink letters to elf-size so they can easily be carried to the North Pole. Once read, your Scout Elf will hang your letter on the Christmas tree as a keepsake ornament!
- Enchanting 32-page children’s book
- 8 pieces of Santa’s Special PaperTM
- Mrs. Claus’ Magic Press
- 8 Scout Elf sashes
- 2 color markers
- 2 pieces of parchment paper
We are planning to write our letters to Santa on December 7th which is National Letter Writing Day. We are going to have a fun after school activity writing letters and enjoying a few favorite treats. I love that you are able to save the letter as an ornament. After Santa reads your letter, he will send it back to hang on your Christmas tree.
