One easy way to help your children learn ways to express their thankfulness is by making homemade thank you cards. All it takes is a little creativity and time! Who doesn’t love receiving a homemade card from a child?
Paper – Use whatever you have around the house. If you have an abundance of plain white copy, use it! Or you can use construction paper or cardstock.
Crayons or Markers
- Help your child determine who they are going to write thank you cards to. Maybe it’s a parent, a grandma or a coach. Maybe it’s a thank you card for a birthday gift they received.
- Let the creativity roll! If you have really young children, you can still do this. Try tracing their hand and then letting them color to their best ability.
- When the thank you cards are finished, hand deliver if possible!
