Little Letters is a collection of notes/letters that younger children can trace and illustrate. The idea of this printable is to get our little ones in the habit of having a thankful heart and expressing their love and gratitude through letters. Plus it is a fun way to sneak in some extra writing practice!
The Valentines collection includes “Happy Valentines Day” letters as well as Valentines Thank You letters. I have varied the letters so that they could be used for friends or family! Just choose the one(s) you want and print! Here are a couple of samples below:
Directions: Simply download and print the tracing page. Talk about being thankful and have your little one trace the note and add an illustration at the top. (Perhaps they could draw a picture of the gift they received.) Then help your child mail the letter or hand-deliver it!
**Be sure to fill in the “Dear ______” part and have your child sign their name at the bottom of the letter. (To see an example of this, see the Christmas Thank You post.)
My little guys loved being able to “write” and illustrate Valentines letters for their extended family!
Then they decided to embellish the top of the page with hearts!
And, they loved using our heart-shaped bottle top stamps!
As an added bonus, they get extra penmanship practice and I feel great about getting them started early with letter writing to express gratitude! It is a habit I hope to develop in them that will stick…forever!
