Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is recovering well from all the holiday fun! We had a great Christmas at home and with family, our kids were definitely spoiled, but I want to instill in my kids that giving is better than receiving and that you should always be thankful for anything that you receive. As a parent, I have been really good about sending thank you cards after birthdays – but I want to be better about other holidays – especially Christmas!
So because I LOVE printables and wanted to make thank you card writing fun for everyone (me and Olive), I designed some fill in the blank Christmas thank you cards! We got them all filled out and ready to mail this afternoon (while Daddy watched football).
Olive is a pro at writing her name, so I left the name space blank on hers. She chose what color she wanted to write her name in on each card, a different color for each recipient.
Here is a close up of the blank card for Olive – or the girly version. For Vance, since he is 2, I went ahead and printed his name on the card. After Olive wrote her name on the card, I wrote down who it was to and what she got from them. Then I asked her what she liked about the gift and I wrote down her answer.
We had a nice stack to do and she was pretty excited about it until the last few – but she insisted on sending a thank you to Santa! Such a sweet girl!
I am sure our friends and family will love them!
In case you wanted to send thank yous and don’t have the energy to get too creative — here is a free printable of the thank yous I designed. One girly, one boyish! Just fill in the blanks and send!! Just click on the link below the image to print or save.
