Let’s talk about keeping the magic of Santa alive. Do your kids write letters to Santa? Lia might be a little too young, but Zoey makes sure to get her letter out to the big guy every year. This year I was fortunate enough to find the FriXion® ColorSticks Assorted for her letter which added so much magic to her letter. Click the link above to purchase yours because trust me…after you see what they can do you will definitely want some.
These pens can erase and magically send your child’s words to Santa himself & get a response just as magically. Ready for these 5 steps to make your child’s letter to Santa extra magical.
1.Purchase FriXion® ColorSticks at your local Target
You can find FriXion Colorsticks in your School/Office aisles at your local Target. Basically, they are super easy to find and you need to grab some! Not only will these pens work for this little DIY they are perfect to have in home. These pens have erasers that actually work! Save 15% on your FriXion pens with this offer.
2.Have your child write their letter with one of the FriXion® ColorSticks
She loved having 12 different colors to choose from. The erasers were an extra plus for Zoey too! I let her get to work and write her letter out. It was so sweet when she asked for things that were not just for her but for our whole family. After she finished she ran downstairs for step 3!
3.Put the letter in the microwave
By putting the letter in the microwave the ink will disappear sending your child’s work straight to the North Pole instantly. No need to mail, it is all MAGIC! I placed it in 30 seconds at a time, after 2-3 times the words fully erased. She was so excited to see the words gone. And then step 4!
4.Write a response from Santa himself & erase it
I waited for Zoey to go upstairs and work on homework. While she did this I grabbed her paper and wrote a response below her own writing. I loved the smooth writing gel ink! Totally using them for our Christmas cards too!Don’t forget to erase it as well so your kiddos don’t see that you responded.
5.Put the letter in the freezer over night
After I was done erasing it I told Zoey we needed to place it in the freezer overnight and wait for Santa to respond. So we did just that. First thing in the morning she ran downstairs to open the freezer. What did she find? Santa had responded to her letter! I made sure to add a reminder for those milk & cookies on Christmas Eve (those are really for me).
Ta-Da! Zoey was absolutely ecstatic. Not only did she have a fun color choice for her letter, she loved receiving a response from Santa. She even asked if she should write back feeling like she now had a way to communicate with Santa himself. I just gave her a little reminder that he had a ton of other kids to respond to lol or this could go on and on and on.
The whole process was so magical and perfect to keep us in the holiday spirit. The best part of it all, it was so easy to make happen and now we have a collection of fun colored pens in our home!
Very cute idea! I will definitely keep this in mind.
Now that my little one can write (and is not so little anymore!) I will have to give this a try. She’s never had to write the letter herself 🙂
yes! she would love it
What a cute and festive idea. My kids LOVE creating Santa lists but I’m not going to lie–it’s hard to fulfill all the wishes!
WHAT?!?! This is such a cute idea, my mind is totally blown right now. I would have freaked as a kid to have something like this happen.
i know!!! she was in shock!
I absolutely LOVE this!! I cannot wait to have my own kids to do this with, such a magical time of year!
thats the best part of being a parent!
