How to Write a Thank You Note for Kids

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

1. Thank You Note 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.

2. Thank You Note Greeting

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

3. Body of Your Thank You Note

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.

4. Thank You Note Closing

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

5. Your 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!
