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.
