Creative Play Challenge Day 6: Write a Letter to a Far-Away Relative or Friend
December 1, 2012 at 3:53 PM

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.

    Ok so we just did this one and my oldest who is still learning to read and write asked me who she should write to and i told her she could write to anyone so she chose to write to the grinch. when i asked why she said that 'maybe if someone wrote him a letter he wouldn't be so grumpy'

    my youngest drew pictures of our family and asked to send it with her sister's letter.





    question... where to address it to? or should i just hang it on our holiday tree?
