After your child writes his or her letter, you’ll just want to follow the simple instructions provided for shrinking the letter in the oven. Of course, parents, you’ll need to handle this part as we don’t want those sweet kiddos to get too close to a hot oven!

Kara’s letter to Santa melted my heart.

After baking the letter to Santa for 3-5 minutes you’ll see some REAL MAGIC take place. The letter shrinks down to the perfect size for your Scout Elf to carry using the provided sash!

Of course, after Santa has had an opportunity to read your child’s letter, he will send it back with the Elf. This is nice, because you can keep that adorable little letter as a treasured family keepsake ornament!
