It’s almost the end of the month and the holiday is over – almost. In our house it is not really over until thank you notes, and in today’s world email thank you notes, are sent. A thank you note teaches your child to stop, think and reflect on the individual gifts they were given and what it meant to them to receive that gift. It also helps them begin to understand the value of that gift in a more concrete way.
Telling the giver how much they appreciate that gift and why in a thank you note will help your child focus on each individual gift – a worthy task in a season where gifts can come in abundance and dull a child’s senses and appreciation for what they have been given.
