Do you all have chimneys for Santa to climb down on Christmas Eve? We don't and every year the kids ask how Santa will get in ...they never seem happy enough with our answer of Daddy will leave the door unlocked.
So this year I decided to make them a magical key to open our back door, all the way from the North Pole!
I made the key, wrote a letter from Santa explaining the plan and popped them into an envelope addressed to the kids and left it in the letter box for them to find....
Here's how I did it....
I used a fairly large bronze key char, painted the main parts with silver nail polish and while still wet,applied silver glitter . When the key was dry on both sides I added a gold ribbon to hang the key with.
I drafted this letter in PicMonkey, please feel free to use it, if you would like to send your kids a key from Santa too. Just right click on the letter and save it to your computer.
Gabe ran up to check the mail this afternoon and made the discovery!
The kids are so, so excited! They love that Santa asked them help and the keep going to check on the magical glittery key (hanging on the tree for now).
Are you nearly ready for Christmas? Just a few more sleeps!
