Magic Santa Key (with free PRINTABLE)

Have your kids ever asked you how Santa gets into your house on Christmas Eve?  We don't have a chimney, so it is always a question at our house.  So, when I saw a bunch of Magic Santa Keys on Pinterest, I knew we needed one.  Here is my version:


Cute, right?  I wrote a short poem and designed a sweet little key tag.  I have made it into a free printable that you can find here.  Just print it out and attach a split ring and a key.  (Feel free to use this printable and share it with friends, but I wrote this poem, so the copyright belongs to me.  Please don't reprint it without permission, and please don't link directly to the download.  Thank you!)


Leave your Magic Santa Key for Santa on Christmas Eve, and he will have no trouble getting in to fill those stockings.  :-)

Gina (aka East Coast Mommy)

PS (One of my readers suggested giving the key to your child when they leave home -- to use as an ornament on his/her Christmas tree.  Brilliant!  Such clever people you all are!  :-)

  2. Hi Gina
    Love the idea! We have had one of these since our first Christmas with kiddies. The one I purchased came with a little note that says you can save these for the kids to have as a Christmas ornament for their own tree when they get older. I now have one for each kid! We leave them at multiple doors and then its a surprise to find out which way Santa came in! So very much love these traditions!

  4. Absolutely loving this idea. We have a fireplace but my kids are afraid Santa will get burned so this would be a great idea for us too.
    Do you mind me sharing this on my blog? I am putting together a list of things I'm loving for Christmas and I would love to share this idea at the beginning of next month. Thanks

  5. This idea is so clever! We don't have a fireplace either, but we've always told our kids that Santa magically makes one like in the movie Santa Clause.

  16. This is such a great idea. We don't have a fireplace (it's way too hot down Under!) so this is such a wonderful way to let the kids know how Father Christmas will be arriving!

    I am hosting my weekly Pinterest linky party at the moment and I would be so honoured if you could link up this Pinterest inspired post!

    Hope you have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

    1. I got the keys at Pick your Plum, but you can get them at craft stores with the jewelery making supplies (pendants).
