How do your kids write their Xmas lists?


DS is 5 now and has been working on his writing at school, he has totally figured out his way around Amazon on the ipad so I'm expecting his first hand written list this year!! I remember going through the argos catalogue as a kid and writing out my list!! What do your kids do and is it odd to keep his first list for sentimental reasons??

No keep it its not odd at all. I wish i have kept mie but we visit the same santa every year and he takes the lists. But just now he mostly wants the things off ads. But i would also get him to go through the catalogues mostly the Symths one

Last year was the first year DS1 showed an interest in doing one, he was 3, nearly 4 at the time so just cut pictures from the argos catalogue and stuck them on, this year I will probably get him to do the same but then help him write a few basic words on it too

I also kept last years and will keep this years no doubt I'm a sentimental hoarder xx

Stalking! We're really struggling for ideas this year. We're not sure whether to sit down with catalogs (we don't have any! But we could hunt for some) or to go through amazon. x

My boys just write as the see things. They stick it to the fireplace (its not used and is actually blocked off so not ever hot) and as and when they see things they write it on there. They have it stuck up for weeks before.

Mine usually write them at the beginning of December, although they already know most of what they want on them now. The older 2 write theirs themselves while I help DD3. I think I will probablly just let them write DD4's between them as she will only be 1.

Defeintly don't think it silly keeping the first one, wish I had done that.

Can't wait for the list now!! Already got a Santa letter pack so we can put it on Christmas paper! Argos catalogue and smyths catalogue will help too!

My DD has started asking for things from TV adverts or when we have been shopping. I quite like the picture idea so we may do that with some writing too

I don't think it's odd to keep them for sentimental reasons if that's what you want to do.

I usually give Roxy the big Toys R' Us catalog that comes in the mail sometime after Thanksgiving and she goes through and circles things that she likes while picking out one or two items (if small things) to ask for from Santa. Lizzy's getting old enough I might let her flip through it too this year and see what things get the most interested reaction.

My LO isn't quite old enough, but I will totally keep his first list!

As kids we were given the big toy catalogs (Sears or Toys R Us I think?) and we circled things. I know I circled a LOT of things and always wondered why Santa couldn't just bring everything, haha.

We took my 1 year old to Toys R Us the other day and I showed him a few things to see his reaction. I'd do it more, but now he gets upset if I don't get him whichever thing it is that he likes and I have to sneak him away.
