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 will surprise Momo (my mom) with a small poem and a drawn picture. :)
My daughter will love sending it off, and my mom will probably cry when she receives it. LOL

My five year old wrote "Turkey Notes", which are little poems for Thanksgiving. She wrote them for mom, dad, sisters and grandparents. I know it is after thanksgiving, but she was really liking them and anything to get her writing!
