Christmas Coloring Pages

I love these Christmas coloring pages that double as fill-in-the-blank thank you notes because it is a simple way for kids to say thanks. Younger kids can write these out with help and older kids will be able to complete the task without a parent looking over their shoulder.

Check out these printable thank you notes.

How to Write a Thank You Note

Thank you notes have five parts and follow the basic structure of a friendly letter.

  • Heading

For most thank you notes and friendly letters, the heading is the date. If you want to get a little fancier, you can also include your return address above the date.

  • Greeting

This is the “Dear _____,” portion of the letter. Feel free to get creative it you are related to the recipient!

  • Body

For thank you note purposes, this can be broken down to three simple topics: what you received, how you are going to use it, and a general happy statement of summary. For younger kids, eliminate the summary statement like we did on the printable fill-in-the-blank thank you notes. Older kids can expand those areas with an additional sentence or short story about the topic.

  • Closing

This is a short, capitalized expression like: Love, Sincerely, Thanks, etc.

  • Signature

Sign it and you are done!

Family Thank You Notes

One year, our family threw the basic structure of thank you notes out the window and instead sent a photo thank you card from the whole family. In the end, it took a little more time, but I love that the kids really got excited about the project. Hopefully the recipients realized how much we appreciated their gifts!
