Kids get SO excited on Christmas Eve anticipating the nighttime arrival of Santa Claus that they often take forever to go to sleep at night. At least mine do! I’m not a fan of having to stay up all night waiting them out so that Santa can leave his gifts under the tree. This year, I am going to get them to go to sleep on time. Maybe even early! Why? Because they are going to sign a Santa contract stating as much.
Kids don’t lie to Santa, right? These notes to Santa are the perfect thing to convince them to go to sleep on time so that Santa can come by at a decent hour. They’ll love hanging them on their bedroom doors for Santa to see.
All you need to do is print and present to your child. So simple!
If your family does Elf on the Shelf, it is a great way to present these to your kids! They will seem more legitimate that they are brought by your elf from the big man himself at the North Pole. Our Elf will be presenting these to my boys on Christmas Eve. All they have to do is mark whether they have been naughty or nice and sign their name promising to go right to sleep so that Santa can come to the house to leave our presents.
You can even laminate the door hangers and have the kids use white board markers to sign their names so that you can bring these out year after year.
Anything to try to get the kids to go to sleep at a decent hour, right? Plus they will be so excited to be leaving a note for Santa Claus himself to see.
