Perfect prompts to help your kids write a thank you note...


Writing that all important thank you note.

Your child may be a great little writer, but we all need a little inspiration sometimes. Writing a thank you note can be both a fun task or an absolute chore, depending on your child’s mood and how they feel about sitting down and putting pen to paper. These days it’s so easy to quickly send someone a thank you text or a video, however, I believe that good old snail mail is still the most gratifying and appreciated form of saying thanks. Who doesn’t love receiving a letter in the post?

BUT, sometimes this note writing lark is easier said than done, so if your child needs a few prompts then look no further because help is at hand!
