Personalized Thank-You Cards

I have not always been good about thank-you notes. In the past few years, however, I have tried my best to be better about sending a kind thank-you for gifts and loving gestures. I want my kids to know the importance of gratitude, so I am doing my best to write thank-you’s with them. This past Christmas, things were a bit hectic around here so I decided to try another method. I took pics of the kids with all their gifts. I uploaded the photos to Snapfish and made postcards. Then, I sat my girls down (one at a time) and asked them to help me write their thank-you’s. Since they’re kids, their thank-you’s were short and sweet – perfect for a postcard – and each recipient got a new photo of my girls! I have received so many compliments on our postcards, so I thought I would share it with you!

Pre-school Pattern Practice

During our regular home school curriculum the other day, we were working on patterns. This is a challenging concept for little ones, so I decided to try to make patterns a little bit more fun this morning … with bead necklaces! It was so easy and she had a blast creating her own pattern necklaces. We started off with these cheap Target beads, then used our Melissa & Doug bead necklace kit for more complex patterns with shapes and letters. We had so much fun, I hope you’ll try it out with your toddler!
