My baby girl turned 3 this past weekend! How did she get to be so old?!? We had a really nice time celebrating her young life and she was so excited about the whole thing =) We had some close family members over for dinner and they were more than generous, showering her with many PINK gifts. Yes, I've got a girly girl, which I love!
Mackenzie got about a dozen new dresses, a play table to go with the kitchen in her room, lots of bracelets and hair clips, some wooden dress-up dolls, a puzzle, and more! With all these wonderful new gifts, we've got some thank you notes to write!
I made up this "Thank you for my gift!" copywork page to help her be involved in the appreciation showing too. If you have a beginning writer with a birthday coming up, you might benefit from this too! Please feel free to use download and print this page all you'd like.
- Write the recipients name on the top line
- Have your child copy the sentence "Thank you for my gift!"
- Use the lines below to write anything else you would like to include (We just loved seeing you and your new little one! Thanks for bringing a salad! Lulu just LOVES her new doll! Hope to see you again soon! etc.)
- Have your child practice writing his or her name on the bottom line
I think taking the time to write thank you notes is such a great way to show appreciation to the gift-givers. I always love hearing that the child I give a gift to actually enjoys what I gave them =) Possibly most importantly, it is a great opportunity to have your child slow down and truly be thankful for each gift and each gift giver, learning the skill of thank you note writing along the way!
