Paper, pens or a computer and printer; a clipboard or lap desk for writing in the car, envelopes
Join with your child to send letters and notes to friends and relatives. Take the lead from your child; you might write the words that your child dictates. Or he might copy or write the words, or he might draw pictures and you can write his descriptions of the pictures beneath. If you have a computer, sit with your child and take turns keyboarding.
Have older children address and stamp their own envelopes. Writing to a special person is a delightful ritual.
