I printed out some writing frames from Sparklebox and made a post box so that we could write lots of letters and post them at home, then just send off one letter to the actual Santa.
Ethan had lots of fun scribbling on the letters and was fascinated by folding, then trying to copy and crumpling up the letters before putting them in and out of the post box. Of course he then started posting everything, crayons, toys, remotes... But it made for a very fun morning, it kept him busy for ages and of course he learned while he played. It's a great pre writing activity for developing his Communication, Language and Literacy and a great drawing activity for his Creative Development.
