Encouraging kids to write thank you cards is beneficial on many levels. It not only instills valuable lessons on gratitude and manners, it also forces the child to reflect on each gift received and what it means to them. And while these reasons may all sound a bit serious, it doesn't mean you can't have fun with the card itself.
