What is a kid to do when you have no chimney for Santa to come down and Mum refuses to leave the window open? Make a Magic Santa Key of course. I have seen these for sale in the shops but why buy one when you can make your very own .... it may not last as long as a store brought version but a morning of fun each Christmas decorating a special Santa key outweighs that I think.
You will need
Card (something a bit sturdy would work best)
1 .Cut out a key shape from card - I used this template for our key
2 .Paint the key
3 .While the paint is still wet sprinkle with glitter
4 .Shake off excess glitter
5 .Let Dry
6 .Repeat on reverse side
7 .From the coloured card make a tag and add the below poem to the tag - I haven't done this part yet as our printer is out of ink
We heard a legend. Is it true?
Of magic only you can do.
We'll leave out any plain old key,
and mark it "Santa" so you can see.
Your magic makes the key fit right,
so you can get inside that night.
Thank you Santa, here's our key.
The milk and cookies are on me!
9 .Put your key out for Santa on Christmas Eve
