You Will Need
- Christmas catalogs
- Pen and paper
Collect catalogs from your child's favorite stores and have them browse for gift ideas.
Note the things your child shows interest in on TV advertisements and when you're out shopping together.
Write a list
Sit down with your child with a pen and paper and make a list together. Ask what they want for Christmas. Remind them of things they have previously requested.
List the items
List the items in order of importance to the child. Remind them that they will not be getting everything on the list -- it is only a list of ideas.
Decorate the list
Have your child decorate the list with crayons to give it a personal touch.
Deliver the list
Go to see Santa and deliver your letter. If Santa is not coming to your town before Christmas, mail the letter to the North Pole, but not before making a copy for yourself.
