Milk and Cookies for Santa

Merry Christmas, everyone!  This is Sherri, and I want to share some adorable ideas that I found online for leaving out milk and cookies for Santa.  Some are simple and include free downloads for you to print; others are more elaborate but totally inspiring.  I hope you find an idea that inspires you, too!  The links to original blog posts are below the photos.

 Merry Christmas!
This first photo just amazes me.  Isn’t it beautiful?  It’s also the perfect alternative for me, since my kids aren’t little anymore.  The “grown-up” feeling would be great for a holiday party, as well.  There is a link to an affordable download, or you could take inspiration from the photo and make your own decorations.

This next photo is from a fabulous blog called “Tatertots and Jello.”  Tons of great ideas and free printables!  The “Cookies for Santa” printable is a free download that you can print on white cardstock or patterned paper (like Jen did.)  I love the patterned background-I think this would look great printed on ledger paper, don’t you?  Just print, add some red baker’s twine, and attach to any empty jar.  I like the glass mug, too!

This last photo is also a free printable that would be perfect for those procrastinators (like myself) who decide on Christmas Eve that they want to do something special for Santa.  Simply print the sentiment, have your child sign the letter, then frame it.  Display the frame beside a plate of cookies and a glass of milk.  I love the little milk bottle in the printable-an empty Frappuccino bottle would be perfect to hold milk for Santa!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these ideas-and I hope that your holidays are the happiest!  Merry Christmas!
