Thank You Note Etiquette for Kids
My kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE office supplies, particularly pens. They were thrilled that Rose Art Write Dudes offered me some pens and pencils to try out when I said that I would use them for Thank You notes since my youngest needed to write Thank You notes for his recent birthday party. My rule is No Gifts or Thank You notes. He opted for gifts. Which means thank you notes. Painfully extracted.
He is distracted by “shiny objects.” This pencil set came with putter erasers and golf ball and he decided to make a game using a roll of Scotch Tape.
I used the group photo from his Laser Tag party to make the thank you note. He only had to write his friend’s name and the gift to complete the thank you note. I’m nice that way!
It took him two sittings over two weeks to get his notes done. He opted for pencil to correct his spelling errors.
PickyKidPix is especially fond of pens particularly dry erase and permanent ink markers. I have no idea why. She grabbed them but she needs to share with her sister because …. now we have to do Christmas thank you notes!!!
I received a box of Write Dudes pens and pencils to try out much to the delight of the my children. My opinions are my own. All I can say is that I barely got my hands on any of the writing implements. My kids absconded with them immediately when they arrived. I was only able to photography them before they were used. Notice how the packages are ripped open? PickyKidPix owns most of the pens sold at Staples. She says that Write Dudes are pretty good. That’s a high compliment for her!
We still need to do Christmas Thank You notes. PickyKidPix might use her new sticker maker machine or her Cuddlebug to make embossed thank you notes for us to use. She will probably charge us though. My kids discussed it and they decided that they each had to write a thank you note for every present they received to their grandmothers, aunts and uncles. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes!
How about you? Are your kids good about writing thank you notes or it is a painful process like mine? Do you make your own thank you notes? Please share!
