Letter to Santa Printable - 12 Days of Christmas - Day 9

I have a funny story to share with you guys. I didn't grow up believing in Santa and Joel was still pretty little when he decided that Santa wasn't real. Because we grew up in Christian households, there was never much of an emphasis on Santa. When we had kids, Joel and I decided to not tell our kids about Santa, mostly because we want the real emphasis of Christmas to be about the birth of Jesus. So anyway, Mac is currently 4, almost 5 years old, and has heard about Santa from preschool and also TV. A couple of months ago, he asked us if Santa was real. We told him no, but that some people like to pretend that he is (and not to tell everybody that Santa isn't real). He's a pretty logical kid, so he accepted this answer and changed the subject. Fast forward to the beginning of December. My dad took the boys to the mall for the morning and a man dressed as Santa said hello to Mac. Mac then turned to my dad and said, "Well, I guess Santa IS real." My dad was speechless. Ha ha! What a funny kid. So now Mac is convinced that Santa is real because he saw him in real life. We've decided not to fight it. He can believe in Santa if he wants. In honor of Mac's Santa realization, I have a fun letter to Santa as a printable today. Be sure to check out the previous ones if you haven't yet. We have the Cute Christmas Tree, Hanging Ornaments, Peace Love and Joy, Peace on Earth, Let It Snow, The Polar Bear, Ho Ho Ho, and Celebrate Jesus. Remember to check back everyday until December 23rd for a new and free printable.


So here's the printable for Day 9 - a letter to Santa.

12 Days of Christmas Printables - Day 6

These next couple of phrases are meant to be sung to the tune of Oh Christmas Tree. Ready? "Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree, I need another printable." Did you sing it this time? Good. I was hoping you would. You're such a good sport. Ha ha. So speaking of Christmas trees, I have a question for you - Do you place your gifts under the tree as they come in? Or do you wait until the night of Christmas Eve, and put then under tree after the kids go to bed? We wait until after the kids go to bed on Christmas Eve, because I KNOW for a fact that Mac & Cheese would not be able contain their excitement. At least one present would get unwrapped before Christmas arrived. Just a thought. You know...in case you were wondering...uhh...so what were we talking about? Christmas Printables, right. So we are currently on Day 6 of the Christmas Printable Freebies. So far we've had A Cute Christmas Tree, Hanging Ornaments, Peace Love and Joy, Peace On Earth, and Let It Snow. If this is your first visit, we have this awesome thing going on here until December 23rd called the 12 Days of Christmas Printables. So come back every day until December 23rd for a new free printable.

Miniature Jack-In-The-Box Paper Craft Christmas Printable

I have a fun little project for you guys today - a miniature Jack-in-the-box paper Christmas craft. So fun and cute! This little Jack-in-the-box is easy enough for little ones with scissor skills, but still fun for adults as well. Plus, there's a free printable to help you make this cute little guy. What more could you ask for?




Simple instructions are included on the printable, but I've included more detailed instructions on this post, as well. It's not required, but I would recommend printing out the Jack-in-the-box on card stock to make it more sturdy.

Cut out and fold Jack on the dotted lines, accordion style. Make sure to start the fold underneath Jack. The first fold needs to be folded behind him. 


When folding the box, fold inward at each dotted line.


Next tape the two tabs underneath both green squares together. 



Add a strip of tape to the bottom tab of the folded Jack, and tape to the bottom of the inside of the box. 



Then add a strip of tape to the small tab on the side of the red box and fold inward.  Tape to the inside of the box. 


Finally, add one more tape strip to secure the bottom two tabs underneath the box.



Fun, right? Mac begged me for days to make this. He and I both made a Jack-in-the-box. And then he stole mine. He really did.

Free Christmas Printables - O Holy Night

Due to the fact that Christmas is only a few weeks away, AND Mac begged us to put up the tree after it snowed recently, I have this holiday on my brain. It's a good thing, you know? I'm kind of a procrastinator. I tend to partake in last-minute-holiday-scrambles. Don't tell anyone. ;) So because Christmas will soon be upon us, I have a gift for you - FREE HOLIDAY PRINTABLES! Woo Hoo! I know you're excited (humor me here). Printables are the coolest, are they not? The possibilities are endless - put them in a frame, stick them on a piece of wood with Mod Podge (my favorite crafting item), use them as cards, there are so many ways you can use a printable.

3 Free Christmas Prinables

O Holy Night is at the very top of my list of favorite Christmas songs. I find the lyrics to this song so moving and it reminds me of how great God's love is for us. These printables were inspired by this song.
