We FINALLY finished thank you cards yesterday! My boys have learned to love writing their cards and I enjoy the extra little details and drawings they add. You see, IF they don't want to write cards then they don't get to keep the gift. Said in a nice way. :) Over the years this has turned into a fun activity with music and treats.
Our cards are super inexpensive and usually pictures with text to add that personal touch. Text can be done in any paint/photo program or in a word document with a text box.
I sent pictures to the hour photo department (or print at home), got out the card stock, double sided tape and paper trimmer. I saw the local craft store had some random packs of cards on sale for .20 cents so I picked up a few just for the smaller envelopes. (I'll recycle the cards in some future craft)
Now for the boys to get to work :)
