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.

We like to write and send letters. We wrote a Birthday card and letter to my brother, Kurt. He lives in New York. We will send it off tomorrow.

My kids will write to their friends that moved away. Other than that, they probably won/t right anyone else as they do not like to write. lol

We actually just did this with our holiday cards. DD not only "wrote" holiday messages to family, we also sent one to the red cross for soldiers.
