Picture Wish List


Here's a fun way for your kids to see what's on their wish list and share it with Santa and his "Elves" (that's mommy and daddy). It's perfect for young children who can't read and write, but know what they want when they see it! We used the Toys R Us Big Book to create our wish list. And now when the kids want something else, we can just add it to the list. Is what you kids want not in print? Try doing an image search on the internet.

  1. What a great idea! My 3 year old and I were going to write a letter to Santa but I think he would have a lot more fun doing this. He loves looking through all of the toy magazines that come this time of year! Thanks for the idea!

  4. My mom used to do this with us when we were kids - she'd give us the sears catalog (yes, I'm old) and a book of white paper that she made by folding in half and stapling down the center.

    I did the same for my kids with a smaller book and used my sewing machine to stitch down the middle. Funny enough, my son only has two things in his and they are both video games. My daughter has things that my son seems to think she needs :)

  5. I love this! I've already purchased gifts for the kids, since we were going on vacation, but I will definitely be using this for next year...especially since they'll be just a little bit older to understand. Maybe we'll start this around September and as they see things, they can put it in their "book".
