Well, it’s that time of the year. You know, when sleigh bells start ringing, at least in songs! But seriously, my kids are all ready making their Christmas lists. My son told me over the summer he already had 6 things on his Christmas wish list! He takes this very seriously and a lot of planning goes into writing his letter to Santa. Have your kids ever wondered how their letters make it to Santa at the North Pole? Well, this year you may want to start a fantastic new tradition where Scout Elf Express delivers letters to Santa and returns them as Christmas ornaments! I’m a brand ambassador for The Elf on the Shelf® and am a sponsored blog partner, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.
How Do Letters Get To Santa At The North Pole?
If you ask children how letters get to Santa at the North Pole, you are sure to get a variety of answers. Santa works in all kinds of mysterious ways, after all! I asked my daughter and she said, “Elves collect them from your chimney and bring them to Santa at the North Pole while you are sleeping.”
A couple of years ago, she thought of something she wanted to add to her Christmas list after her letter to Santa had already disappeared up the chimney. Did she let that stop her? No, she appealed to her good buddy, Stewart, our family Elf on The Shelf. I walked into our living room in the morning to find he had received a letter imploring him to carry the message to Santa and her piggy bank savings to help out.
And when my kids make treats for Stewart, I think they know that it can only help his reports back to Santa. That is why getting my kids a Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa is going to be such a fantastic addition to their Christmas traditions.
Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa
I told my kids that while I was passing a Scout Elf adoption center at a store the other day, I noticed that they have something brand new- a Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa kit! “What?” they said, slightly confused. So I explained that the kit makes it easy for you to shrink the letters down so that the Scout Elves can easily carry letters to Santa at the North Pole. “Oh! That makes sense,” Sierra said. “I never thought about how many elves it must take to carry our letters up the chimney.” Leo, chimed in, “Now it will be so much less work and Stewart can do it by himself!”
So I told them that since they liked the idea I would get them a Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa kit soon and they can start planning their letters so that when #ScoutElfReturnWeek arrives, they will be ready!
The Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa kit is a one-of-a-kind activity kit that combines the beloved Elf on the Shelf tradition with the joy of writing letters to Santa. Then once the Elf on the Shelf delivers the letters to Santa the elf brings them back and hangs them on the Christmas tree so that the kids will know Santa has read their list. The extra huge bonus to all of this is that parents can keep the Christmas letters that have been shrunk dow to keepsake ornament size.

- Children’s storybook
- Santa’s Special PaperTM (8)
- Mrs. Claus’ Magic Press
- Ribbon Sashes (8)
