For years, kids have written Santa Claus letters asking him questions about his special job and requesting certain gifts. Writing a letter to Santa is fun and it's even more magical to get a letter back in response! Right now, through December 15th, kids can write a letter to Santa at the Hessen Cassel Branch Library
. All letters will be mailed to Santa Claus, Indiana where special elves will make sure each child gets a response from Santa himself!
This super fun holiday program has some bonus brain boosting power! Just look at the benefits of this one simple activity.
It's a FUN reason to practice writing.
Kids may seek help spelling words they don't usually use, like sleigh.
Practice writing a letter helps kids understand that written communication takes different forms depending on the situation.
It's good handwriting practice too. Santa can't respond to a letter he can't read!
