Easy-To-Write Kids Thank You Card Ideas

Kids Thank You Card Ideas #peartreegreetings #kids #thankyoucards
It can be difficult to get your kids to write thank you cards for their birthday party gifts, especially when they are too young to write a note. The party is over, half the presents are broken already, and this feels like work to your little one. But you can make it a fun craft project, starting with kids thank you cards that match the theme of his or her party.

If your child is just learning to write, there’s nothing more fun for friends and family to receive than a note that has a few words, or even just his or her name printed on it. They will love to see your child’s first attempts at handwriting. Another option is to have mom write the body of the note, using your child’s voice for fun.

An option for even younger kids is to have them “sign” it with a hand print. This makes for a fun rainy-day painting project. A less messy option is to trace the hand, or have your child draw a picture inside to personalize the note.

Writing thank you cards is good birthday party etiquette, and a good habit to get into when your kids are little. That way it won’t become such a battle when they’re older. Those graduations and weddings will come along sooner than you think!

  1. Your designs are unique but your website is cumbersome and not intuitive. I tried repeatedly to filter my choices—-asking for a horizontal one photo flat layout was far too much to ask of your system. Finally, I built one, but was unable to review it before purchasing. Obviously, I didn’t make the purchase. Although Shutterfly’s designs are rather standard, I’ll take their simple, direct, user-friendly system anyway. You folks are too clever for your own good.
