DIY: Making a Thank You Card Out of Kid Art2:17 PM
My son's birthday came and went. I still am in total shock that he is three! He was given many lovely gifts from his grandparents and his aunts and uncles. I feel it is very important to teach my children to be thankful for what they have, so I decided to make a fun game out of making thank you cards for the gifts that he received.
Here is what we did to make these simple, one-of-a-kind Thank You cards.
1. My son created some awesome watercolor paintings using his favorite colors.
3. We then wrote a little note on the back thanking each individual for the gift they gave. I had my little dude tell me what to write. Then I let him practice signing his name. (He had a little help of coarse) This made each little note personalized, and the things he said were priceless.
4. Finally I glued on the word "thanks" to the front of each card. He wanted them to say "thanks" so that is exactly what I put.
5. Finally we prepared the envelopes and sent them on there way. He loved putting the stamps in place and sticking them in the mailbox. This was such a great little activity, and I was so glad that he enjoyed it so much!
