Fill in the Blank Thank you Note {Free Printable}

Fill in the Blank  

Birthdays and holidays bring many gifts for kids.   I think that it’s so important to teach our children how to show their gratitude for getting these gifts.   Even though Bear {4.5 years} isn’t quite able to write out his own, he is able to sign his name.   Usually I have him narrate what he wants the card to say.   Sometimes it’s on track with the “thank you” topic, sometimes it’s not.

That’s what makes these fill-in-the-blank thank you cards so helpful.   I can read the prompts and he fills in the blanks (I write it, of course).   But for older children, you can give them these to do on their own, which makes the gesture even better!

Free Printable  

All of these cards are 4×6 inches and will print out on photo paper that is that size.   Or you can print them on cardstock, whatever you choose to do.

Thank You Note

  • For younger children, let them draw a picture, even if it’s just scribbles to send to the person who made the day special for them.
  • Take pictures of the child opening the gift.   You can then use photo editing softward to add a little thank you message to the gift-giver.   The photo can be either printed and mailed or sent via email to them.
  • Older children could write an acrostic  poem where each letter of the word starts the sentence.   They could create their poem based on the words “thank you”, the name of the gift, or the name of the gift-giver.

No matter how it’s done, thank you letters not only teach children how to show gratitude, they boost the happiness of the person who recieves it  by making them feel appreciated.
