How to send a letter to Santa

Step 1 Write the Letter

Have a chat with your child about what they might like Santa to bring them. Remind them that Santa has lots of presents and that he needs to be able to fit it in the sled. You can also use this opportunity to talk about how to address a letter- this is a great literacy teaching moment where a ‘real world’ scenario can be used to teach.
Write the letter.

Step 2 put the address on the envelope

Again, another wonderful chance to talk to your child about how to write an envelope and talk to them about their own address as well.

Santa’s Address

To ensure Santa can reply, please attach a 65 cent stamp on the front of the envelope and write your name and return address on the back.

Please note that Santa will only reply to Australian addresses.

Letters to Santa can be placed in a dedicated Santa mailbox at most Post Offices or any red street post box.
