Kids Thank You Cards

As I'm trying to help my son develop lifelong habits, I'm trying to involve him in the process of the task as early as possible. In regard to thank you notes, I believe that once children are old enough to sit up and hold a pen, they are old enough to be involved in the writing of their own thank you notes. No knowledge of the alphabet necessary!

These are the thank you notes my kiddo and I made this evening for some of his Christmas presents. The recipient gets a thank you plus a toddler mini masterpiece:

The supplies are things most moms already have on hand:
First: Fold the cardstock in half length-wise and cut in half. Give to your toddler to color.

Next: Use your permanent marker to write Thank You on the cover of the card.

On the inside allow your munchkin to scribble his thank you note with the regular pen. Once he is done, you can add a translation for the recipient.

That's it! Easy peasy. Hope you enjoyed my tip for a great way to involve even your littlest kids in writing thank you notes. Now go forth and spread thanks!
