My kids love writing notes and cards to anyone and everyone. Rainy day? Let’s write a card to Nana and Grampy! Twenty minutes left until dinner? Write a note to your friend at school! Last minute cancellation of a playdate? Let’s create fancy invitations for next time! All we need is paper (even smoothed out brown paper bags) and some sort of writing implement — doesn’t matter what kind. Stickers are a special treat. And WOW! can you feel the excitement when we take out the stamps.
Lately, R2-D2 and Harry Potter have been making repeated appearances in the cards, but once in a while something more original pops up. This card below is what happened when my 4-year-old wrote a love note to a classmate. “They’re balloons, Mama!”
