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.


If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Creative Play Every Day Challenge yet, you can do so here!

    Richie is to little still to write, but I can pen a letter to my parents and have Richie color a picture for them. My parents love getting stuff from him like this.

    This is cool.  DD can write to my CM's Besties daughter.  Thanks for the idea.
