thank you, danke, gracias, arigatou gozaimasu

thankyou

I think it is very important to teach my children to be thankful for everything. We talk about being grateful. I try to explain to them how very blessed they are. Since they are so small, still, one of the easiest things I do to reinforce thankfulness is to have them make thank you cards.

I found this adorable Melissa and Doug sticker book that I gave them for Christmas. They used it along with crayons to say “thank you”. I printed up the words “thank you” in different fonts and colors for them to cut out and glue onto their cards. The cards themselves are pieces of scrapbook paper that I use for lots of different crafts.

The girls had lots of fun making these. I did, too, actually.

It’s a tea party! Each item is a separate sticker. The girls created their own “scene”. Kate’s is on top, Isabel’s is on the bottom. Adorable.
It took a bit of explaining to get them to realize what I wanted them to do. They really just wanted to put stickers EVERYWHERE! But, once I showed them all the different themes, their imagination took off. They made several more, I just didn’t photograph them all.

  1. I’m a big believer in thank you notes. Almost no one sends them any more, which makes me more determined to do it and instill it into my son. He is finally able to write them by himself and we talk about why it is important to thank people properly. It is never too early to teach this! Glad to hear you are fighting the good fight too! Those cards are adorable!
