a little thank you

I'm a fan of thank you notes, and I would like my kids to be too. But getting your children into the habit of writing thank you notes before they can actually write is a bit of a challenge. I appreciate every thank you note we get, even the ones clearly written by moms and dads, but it's nice to have a little bit of the childs' personality in there too. So I came up with these speech bubble thank you cards..

First I made a little template out of some thick cardstock and then traced and cut out several speech bubbles from different kinds of paper. My cards are 3" x 5" so I made sure my bubble would fit nicely on the card.

Then I glued the speech bubbles onto the cards and used my handy rubber stamp set to say "A Note from C". Now for the fun part, I had C sit down with me and talk about all the gifts he received for his birthday. I would remind him who each present came from and then I would just write down exactly what he said.

Some of his comments are hilarious. I would never have been able to make them up myself. This makes a thank you card that feels very much like my little boy. And we made a few extras so he can send a little note to whomever he pleases whenever he likes.
