Digital P's and Q's
Colorful index cards and a Sharpie; or an Easel and chalk or a marker; a digital camera; your gift-laden child.
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!
