Homemade cards

Creative crafts

Help your children make a supply of handcrafted thank-you cards. Give them to your child’s sport coach, music teacher or school teacher.

Purchase some cardstock with matching envelopes and work with your children to make a supply of handcrafted thank-you cards for use in the future, as the need arises.

If you need an idea to get started, you might like to decorate your cards with some of the phrases from the hands-on option Fun ways to say thank you. Print out your thank-you phrases in a variety of different languages and colours, then glue them on the cover of your card. Inside, write the caption “Many, many thank yous!”

Whenever you finish an enrolled session, be it a team sport, swimming lessons, music lessons or a school term, have your child take a thank-you card to the teacher or coach.
