Chances are, your child can't visit everyone during the holidays, but you can help everyone stay connected by writing letters! We love the skills letter-writing can build in children, including spelling practice, storytelling, imaginative play, and more. Today, ask your child to create a letter (or draw pictures if they are still learning how to write) for one family member or friend.
Tell us: Who did your child write to?
For three easy (and imaginative) activities to help your child embrace the art of writing letters, read our recent blog post.

Tuesday, I got out paper, markers, crayons, pencils, and feathers for the kids to make cards. They all picked a different person - aunts, uncles, grandparents, and great grandparents. The cards are quite interesting to say the least. Though my 6 year old cut out a bird's body from shiny paper and then glued feathers to it to give the bird a gorgeous tail! I was impressed with his creativity.
Now I just have to get them in the mail. :)
