Of course, the first thing to do is determine the structure of the letter. It is also important to think about what exactlywrite. You can not just tell Santa Claus what gift will be most desired. Therefore, the letter should begin with the description of the author himself. If your children already know how to write, let them self-describe themselves. But children need less help from adults. Make a list of certain questions that the kid should answer, and write down everything with his words. Do not do all the work for the child. Let him think himself that he can tell about himself, - name, age, where he lives and with whom, pets, favorite toys, cartoons, hobbies.
Then you can go to the second part of the letter: achievements of the child. Let him remember what he learned forlast year - learned poems or alphabet, the first written letters. All important achievements the child himself must realize and describe them.

Let him think carefully about what he could do next year on his own, or what duties he would begin to do around the house. In no case do not put pressure on the child, you can only tell him. Make sure that everything promised by the child was concrete and executable.
Do not forget to explain to the child why you need thisdetail in the letter: Grandfather Frost will not be interested to read the letter, in which there are only a couple of lines. The more a child can write about himself, the better.

You should also make sure that the gifts that the child wants to receive from Santa Claus were affordable for you.
And the last part - decoration of the letter and a creative gift to Santa Claus. This attribute is optional, but for developmentaesthetic taste and imagination of the child does not hurt. The letter can be decorated with applique, your own rhyme or drawing. The main thing is for the child to decorate the letter himself.
So, the letter is written. Now it remains to decide what to do with it. Him can be sent to the address where Father Frost lives. Another option is to put a letter onwindow sill with the child. When the baby falls asleep, the letter can be picked up. You can leave small traces on the place of the letter, they say, Grandfather's assistants arrived at night and took the letter.
