Love Letters

ages 3-6


Supplies

Construction paper, card stock, or any kind of paper; markers or crayons; scissors; envelopes and postage.

Activity Detail

My four-year-old isn't that interested in drawing, but he loves sending and receiving mail. So to stimulate his interest in arts and crafts, we make 'I Love You' cards. It doesn't have to be a special occasion to send an 'I Love You' card, so we make and send cards to family/ friends throughout the year. To make it a fine motor skill activity, we often come up with different shapes to cut the cards in (hearts, etc.) and we practice writing.

I like this idea to help stimulate a child's interest in art. We like to make our own birthday cards too, which a fun activity and saves money.

Everyone loves to get a special card from a child in the mail. Children love to send mail and making the card by themselves is a great idea.

Using scissors is great for little hands because it helps to build the hand strength that they need to develop their handwriting skills. Using scissors is also good for hand-eye coordination!
