Top 10 Ways to Include Older Siblings in the Santa Experience

November 1, 2015

Christmas is a magical time of year. The children are excited to be visited by Santa and cannot help but wonder what he will bring them. However, for the older siblings Christmas might have lost a little magic. They have reached that age where they realize that Santa isn’t a real person, but that can create some wonderful opportunities to include in the Santa experience.

  1. Remind the older siblings what Santa represents. That he may not be a real person, but his spirit of giving, love, and wanting to help mankind is what Christmas is all about. Enlist their help in a service project that brings toys to needy children who may not get a visit from Santa that year.
  2. Include them on Christmas Eve with playing Santa. Let them help with simple things like filling the stockings and wrapping Santa’s presents.
  3. Have them sprinkle fake snow around the house and the trudge through it in oversize boots to make Santa footprints. The little ones will love waking up and seeing that Santa has been there, and the older one will enjoy making the prints.
  4. Let them eat some of Santa’s cookies and drink some of the milk. Also have them nibble on the carrots to make it look as though the reindeer munched on them.
  5. Have them write a thank you note from Santa for the milk, cookies, and carrots. Leave that note out for the little ones to see on Christmas morning. These little personalized letters from Santa will mean the world to their younger siblings.
  6. If you have a fun holiday tradition, like hiding a pickle ornament on the tree for the kids to find that morning, let the older ones help with it.
  7. Encourage them to still write a letter to Santa. Having them write a Christmas letter to Santa will show the little ones that even though they’re older, that they still believe in Santa and it helps to keep the magic alive.
  8. Let them assist with choosing a present from Santa to give to their younger siblings.
  9. Have them leave out something small that Santa forgot, like a key or mitten, for the younger children to find.
  10. Have them go outside, and with their fists, make reindeer prints in the snow.

Allowing older children to apart of the Santa experience will help to keep Christmas magical for the younger siblings while letting the older one enjoy a more grownup version. Doing this will start to create new and fun ways to celebrate Christmas.

Christmas is all about being with family, sharing and giving. What better way to incorporate all three of those than by giving a child a personalized letter from Santa? A letter from Santa has many positive advantages and can provide much more than just a great Christmas gift for that special child in your life.

A Letter from Santa creates smiles, excitement and everlasting memories.

Not much can compare to the excitement of receiving a letter in the mail as a child, except if that letter came from Santa Claus himself! Your child will be astonished to know that Santa not only exists but that he knows tons about your child. A letter from Santa is something your child will remember and talk about for years to come.

smiling child

A Letter from Santa encourages good behavior and reinforces sharing and giving.

Receiving a Santa letter telling your child Good job with their behavior is quite possibly one of the highest accomplishments a person can receive during childhood.  Children strive all year not fully knowing if they’ve made the cut to be on the official Good List or not. Now your child can know for sure that they have done a job well done.  Most Santa letters also mention sharing with friends and family and tell about the importance of giving.

 A Santa letter helps maintain childhood innocence by keeping the belief in Santa alive.

Your child will be amazed when they receive a letter full of information only Santa could know. Each letter mentions your child’s name, friends, achievements, city and more. Believing in Santa is a part of childhood innocence most of us wish we could get back. Help your child have lasting memories about Santa Claus by ordering your Santa letter now.

Child Smiling

Santa letters let child know they are special and thought of.

Every kid likes to feel loved, especially by Santa and Santa letters help with that. Your child will forever remember the excitement they feel when they receive a personalized letter from Santa specific to them. Santa can even include a custom P.S. to your child.

Santa letters also help build confidence and self esteem

Build confidence and self-esteem in your child by creating a letter from Santa that both applauds and encourages good behavior and a positive attitude. Santa letters are personalized to your child and can make mention of accomplishments and goals your child has achieved. Sometimes it’s nice to have someone other than your parents tell you “Good Job” and a letter from Santa does just that.
