A perfect holiday tradition to start this Thanksgiving is to have the kids write their letters to Santa! Not only will this keep them busy before dinner, it will give you an idea of what they wish for under the tree. All you need are some basic office supplies and a place for the kids to put it all together. When the letters are done, have them place it in an envelope and put it in the mailbox. While everyone is having dinner, one of the adults can leave to pick up the letters. Before he comes back in, he can ring a bell, and everyone can claim it was Santa's reindeer picking up their letters. Parents can also mail a response back to their kids signed especially from Santa using these directions!
