printable thank you notes for kids

I'm a big fan of the thank you note. Gratitude is something I try to practice daily, and that includes putting pen to paper whenever I can.

I am always looking for ways to inspire that same spirit in my kids, because I think it's important. So last weekend, I printed some easy to use thank you notes for the kids to send to all family and friends who spoiled us this Christmas.

Since Henry is learning to read and write, I created fill-in-the-blank notes. Maira is huge on stickers right now, so I made labels that she could combine with stickers on cards. Astrobrights card stock is my favorite paper for kid crafts, and I use Avery mailing labels for everything. 

Of course, getting the kids to write them is all about timing... and sometimes bribes. (Hot cocoa with marshmallows? Sure!) But I think it's worth it, and I know the kids are starting to get it.

Like that note up there addressed to Santa? That was all Henry's idea. When he reminded me that we had to write that one more note, I've gotta admit I beamed with pride.
