Thank You Cards

You Will Need:

Paper or cards, pens, paper or old magazines to make collages, etc.

Directions:

Explain to your child why thank you cards are important and have him participate as much as possible in making and sending them. He can glue paper on the front of the card, draw a picture, or make a few scribbles. It's the thought and the effort that are important Say things like, “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 happy?” If your child is older, he may want to make his own cards, either on the computer or with construction paper.

Tip:

Model behavior you want to see from your child -- let him see you writing thank you cards, too..
