Even if you aren’t inclined to make this fabulous hanging letter writing center (which Future Craft Collective authors are sharing instructions for on Craft), there are great ideas in their post for encouraging your kids to write letters (real, actual letters on paper) to foster connections with far-flung family.

Moms Bernadette and Katie of Future Craft Collective have lots of strategies for getting your kids interested in letter writing and their writing center helps keep everything in one place including stationery and post cards (that your kids can make), stamps and small cards with ideas of things to write about to help prompt kids’ creativity.

They walk you through constructing the writing center in their post, part of Craft’s Summer Camp series. If you can’t sew or don’t have the time, you can still get inspiration for other writing centers you can make and ways to facilitate the dying art of the (hand)written word.
