As much as I love throwing parties, sometimes it's nice to just have a few friends over for a low-key playdate. No stress, no fuss...just fun! We recently had a Letters to Santa get-together where the kids played, crafted and of course, penned a letter to the jolly old elf himself.
The sweet and simple invites were designed using Canva. I punched holes on the sides of the invites, threaded through a bit of bakers twine and attached a tiny candy cane.
What's a play date without play dough? I used this quick and easy play dough recipe and added a bit of peppermint extract to make it candy cane scented. Throw a bit of glitter into the dough if you're feeling extra festive!
The kids had a blast putting together their own little mailboxes to house their Santa letters. We loved that the foam stickers were peel and stick...no messing with glue and waiting for them to dry. Check out the hundreds of fun Christmas crafts for kids Oriental Trading has to offer this holiday season!
The Christmas mailboxes turned out so cute and I love the thought and creativity each child put into their craft.
The kids were SO excited to write their letters to Santa. These color your own letter to Santa pages are perfect for little ones. They loved coloring the cute pictures and filling in the blanks with their names, ages and what they'd love for Christmas.
The kids carefully folded their special letters to Mr. Claus....
....and placed them inside their Christmas mailboxes in hopes that elves will soon deliver them to The North Pole!
This was such a great way to get a few friends together to usher in the holiday season. I'm sure Santa can't wait to read these sweet letters!
