Sending thank you notes has become somewhat of a lost art.
Actually, sending any snail mail has become somewhat of a lost art! So this past weekend, I decided to have my kids learn about Thank You notes for all their Christmas presents. It was also important to do this to teach gratitude. Being thankful helps add to contentment and joy in a person’s life.
What to include in the Thank You Notes
It doesn’t have to take a long time to put together some thoughtful Thank You notes. There are no steadfast rules of what to write except to make sure to say thanks and mention what it is you are thankful for whether that is a gift, help with something, emotional support, or more. Read more from Hallmark for examples for specific situation.
What to use to send Thank You Notes
Options of what to use to send the note are a handwritten letter, Thank You greeting card, postcard, or even a printable flyer type note. For my kids (and all the Christmas Thank You notes they needed to send), I made a Thank You flyer type note to save some time…
Ok, I know, I know.
How am I teaching my kids about gratitude with a form letter? Each of these were colored and decorated and stickered to put the kids’ unique touch on. One was even cut out to made to look “fancy.” They enjoyed working on the Thank You notes and we spent time talking about Christmas and getting to spend time with family and all the gifts. What a fun time reminiscing about the holidays!
Sending Thank You notes doesn’t have to be a difficult chore. Simply pick the stationery you want and decide what note you want to send and have fun! It’s a great way to remember friends and family and blessings you’ve been given. Sending Thank You notes also a great way to bless others!
