Get a Real Letter from Santa
Keep the magic alive for your true-blue believers by arranging to have a letter from Santa arrive in the mail. The USPS has a Letters from Santa program; simply have your kiddo write a letter, then you write a letter from "Santa" and send them both to the North Pole by December 15th. Then, wait and watch the delight on her face when a letter pops up in the box just for her.
