One thing I always remember about the holidays is my parents making me write thank-you notes afterward. As much as I balked at it back then, I’m glad it was made such a focus because it’s now a habit! I think it’s important for my child to learn to write thank-you notes for each of her gifts at every holiday.
Since she’s so young I use the fill-in-the-blank versions. This year I formatted a printable thank-you note that is 4×6 sized to fit onto my mobile printer’s photo paper. She loves sending things to the printer from the iPad so I know this will make her much more excited about working on her thank-you notes.
For the 4×6 version click the link below and download the jpeg file, ready to print straight from your mobile device:
