Teaching Kids About Gratitude + Free Thank You Note Printable

Hello, everyone! I am thrilled to be here today to share a quick project idea for Steph’s Summer of Service series. I have loved all of the ideas shared so far. What a great concept!
Teaching children the importance of gratitude is something I feel very strongly is a crucial part of parenting. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the moments are often fleeting when we can take time out of our hectic schedules to say thank you to those around us who make our lives better. The act of saying thank you can be particularly meaningful when the message is directed at people who usually remain anonymous: firefighters, members of the armed forces, police officers, teachers and others.
I recently created a {{Printable Fillable Thank You Card}} and my daughter and I sat down and decided who in our community we wanted to thank for their service. I created a box of the front of each note to give my daughter a place to draw a picture for each recipient, with fillable fields on the inside of the note to give her the opportunity to express her feelings of gratitude, and also to sign her name.

After placing these in the mailbox, I was thrilled to see the excitement on my daughter’s face. I know her sweet little notes will bring much happiness to each and every one of the lucky recipients!
Thanks, Steph, for having me over today to share this little idea! Y’all are welcome over at Positively Splendid any time!

    This is so cute. I know my 2-year-old will love this. She enjoys getting cards, and she has such a loving personality, that she’ll enjoy giving them as well.
