12 Days of Christmas Activities – Day 8 Cookies for Santa #12JollyDays

Disclosure 1



The tradition of leaving cookies for Santa is one of our favorites. Every year, we pick a day close to Christmas Eve (usually 1-2 days before) and bake a few different types of cookies and treats. We don’t worry about whether the cookies are perfect or misshapen. It’s just about having fun and being together. I like to choose easy recipes that Lucas can mostly do himself.





Fun and cute like the treats below!


On Christmas Eve, we head to my parents for their annual party and when we get home Lucas puts out a plate of cookies and glass of milk for Santa…


He also likes to leave Santa a note.

“I love you. Your the best. Merry Christmas.” – Lucas



and, carrots for the reindeer of course!



From baking and decorating the cookies to leaving the cookies out for Santa on Christmas Eve, this is such a fun activity to do as a family.
