‘Tis the Season … to make sure you send out your Thank-you notes! And having your kids take part is very important. Since my kids were old enough to scribble I made sure that they had a role in making and sending out thank you notes… getting them in the habit early on (just as my mom did for me!) Last year I created a letter template for Henry to fill out to show his appreciation.
This year, since Henry has become an excellent writer, I had Honor make the cards and Henry do the writing. He really did a wonderful job and got them all done before the first of the year!
Here’s how we made the cards …
We took a toilet paper tube and dipped the end into white paint. Honor then stamped 3 paint circles onto a piece of blue construction paper folded in half. We then used google eyes, markers, buttons, black construction paper hats, and toothpicks to transform the 3 circles into a snowman!
They did make great cards, but they could also be a fun craft project on their own!
