The handwritten thank you note is alive and well in our house. Smilegram is a fun way to start or continue this tradition in your own home.
I recently wrote this post for MomAgenda "The Art of the Thank You." And it definitely resonated with moms. There were a ton of tweets, comments and posts about this trend. (read the full article at http://www.momagenda.com/blog). And I recently read a New Yorker article about Taylor Swift, Did you know that she hand writes note to all the radio stations that interview her? Just a little more proof that this practice might just lead to greatness.
Having the write, I mean right supplies on hand is essential to make thank you notes more of a craft project and less like homework. Smilegram takes the chore out of this activity with their printed stationery.
Founded by a mom, this brand is known for the cheerful prints and the LINES. That's right folks, lines are the key. Kids can write without feeling like they are messing up. The genius is that the lined paper steers them in the correct direction.
Some of our favorite products include the writing table with a race car theme($8.99):
Personalized Stationery (pick from 12 fonts) set includes 12 cards and envelops ($9.99)
Our tester absolutely loved her paper (in fact I had to hide the rest of her set so we'll have supplies for the holidays). We recommend getting a personalized set for the holidays--you won't regret teaching your children the art of giving thanks.
In today's fast-paced, acquisitive society, products like this remind us to slow down and truly appreciate what we have been given. If you want more grateful kids, it's got to come from you. Thank you notes are worth the effort.
