Happy new year 2014!!
Have things gone back to normal yet at your home? We finally got all the Christmas gifts put away a couple of days ago. We just put away our tree and other Christmas decorations as well. But one thing we didn’t want to forget this year was to make sure our children wrote thank you notes for the gifts they received from relatives far and wide. I believe in teaching kids early to show gratitude for things they are given. For us, learning how to write thank you notes is an important part of that process.
My kids, who are just four years old, are too young to do much writing at this point. But my husband worked with them to write their thank you notes. He talks with QBoy and XGirl about what they received and what they like about it. And he helps them craft a thank you. The kids watch as he writes, and then they sign their own names.
Older kids may be capable of doing some writing but may not have the skill to write an entire thank you note by themselves. For the first Weekly Kids’ Co-op of 2014, I am highlighting two posts sharing free printables to assist children in writing thank you notes in exchange for gifts they have received. If your children still need to write thank you notes for the gifts they received this year, be sure to check out the offerings below.

We sat down (4 kids and I) yesterday and did our thank you notes for Christmas. It was a somewhat painful process juggling 4 kids. Oy! I wish I had seen these printables earlier. I’ll save them for the next round of thank you notes for the kids birthdays.
Oh yeah, it’s hard enough with our two, I can only imagine with four! 🙂
