Letters from the North Pole

Reading and writing: fun for the kids, easy for the parents

Here are some of the past letters and activities from the North Pole. Each activity involves some reading or writing element for the child.

Every letter is different throughout a 6-year period.

In April, Mrs Claus has a lot of baking to do because five of the reindeer have a birthday! One year, Santa and all the staff of the workshop attended a theater show about Frosty. Children even got a ticket!

In March, it is Santa’s birthday. Did you know? Once, Santa discovered that he lost his hat during a recent trip to Florida. Wondering if a child took it?

After a well-deserved vacation after the holidays, Santa came back to the North Pole and did some serious clean up. Santa and the elves are very conscious of the environment, so they recycle as much as they can. The children were encouraged to find the Recycle logo on various objects around the house.

In January, Santa usually takes a well-deserved vacation. One year, he went to Florida (the exact location is secret), but he gave the children the whole itinerary of the many cities he visited and they could plot the trip on a map.

Every December, Santa is closely watching the weather because of that important day of deliveries on Dec 24th. Last year, Mrs Claus also shared her favorite cookies recipes with the children.

In November, it usually starts to snow (good thing so it would be easier on the sleigh). Last year, one reindeer caught a cold (oh no!), and Santa added some touches of glitter paint on the sleigh. The children got a calendar to mark the days until Christmas and even some leftover glitters from the sleigh.

In October 2018, a new elf called Eclair joined the workshop, the sleigh got inspected and Santa also got his yearly license plate for the sleigh. The children were able to create their own license place with the letters included and the special instructions.
