You Will Need:
Paper or cards, pens, paper to collage etc.
Have children participate as much as they are able in sending thank you cards. They may glue paper on the cover, draw a picture, or make a few scribbles. It's the thought and the effort that are important. “We need to send Grandma a card to thank her for your birthday present. What do you want to tell her about it? What do you enjoy/like about the present? Can you draw a picture of yourself playing with the present? How did you feel when you opened the package? What can you say that will make her feel that happy?” Older children may want to make their own cards either on the computer or with construction paper.
Let your child see you writing thank you cards also. Model behavior you want to see from your child.
