Digital P's and Q's

ages 0-6


Supplies

Colorful index cards and a Sharpie; or an Easel and chalk or a marker; a digital camera; your gift-laden child.

Activity Detail

With a stack of colorful cards and a Sharpie or with an easel and a marker, you can quickly send thank yous for all the gifts your children receive on their birthdays. Write on the easel or the cards "Thank you for the [write gift name here]." With your child in front of the easel or the cards, snap a picture with your digital camera. Then change the item and take the next picture. You can either print the picture to send to relatives/friends or quickly email them. Be sure to have those older kids practice their writing skills by writing the name of each gift!

What a wonderful way to make thank you notes personal. I'll definitely try this after my son's next birthday.

If you decide to print and mail the pictures, let your child address and put stamps on the envelope and then take a little trip to the mailbox - my son loves to play mailman!

Instead of using the easel, we took pictures of my daughter with the presents that friends and relatives from out of town sent (for example, reading a book or wearing dress up clothes). Then we printed out the pictures and wrote a thank you note on the back. Everyone loved receiving these in the mail and seeing her enjoying their gifts!

If child is old enough have them write the item on the blackboard in their own handwriting. Also, maybe have your child hold the item while taking the photo to further personalize it.
