How to Mail Your Letter to Santa and Get a Response!
Did you know the USPS has a Greetings from the North Pole Post Office program? They get a reply (filled out by you) complete with the North Pole Postmark! It’s a great way to introduce kids to letter writing, stamps and penmanship.
First, have the kids fill out this printable letter.
Then put it in an envelope. Address the envelope to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
Now, you need to do something! You write a personalized response to the children’s letter and sign it “From Santa.”
Insert both letters into an envelope, and address it to the child.
Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:
NORTH POLE POSTMARK
4141 POSTMARK DR
ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
USPS recommends sending your letters by December 7 so that they can be received by the Anchorage, AK, Postmaster no later than December 14. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage, AK, will take care of the rest!
Tips from USPS:
- To save paper, write on the back of your child’s letter. If you keep them together, your child will also be able to recall what he or she wrote.
- When responding as Santa, make letter from Santa as personal as possible by highlighting your child’s accomplishments over the past year. For example, helping around the house, receiving good grades in a particular subject at school or participating in community service activities.
- This is a great activity for Thanksgiving that the whole family can enjoy, including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other caregivers.
