Studio Talk: The Art of a Handwritten NoteApr 23 2014 · 0 comments · Articles, Studio Talk
April is National Letter Writing month. This is an annual effort to promote literacy and celebrate the art of letter writing. To celebrate, I am doing two things this year. I will catch up on all of handwritten “thank you” notes. Also, I am introducing my 10 year old daughter to writing thank you notes and letters. We created a special stationery box just for her and I gave her a special silver pen to store with her personal stationery collection. I’m passing on a tradition that has existed for centuries. Teaching your child to write thank you notes is also a great way to teach children how to practice gratitude. That’s a gift your child will carry with them for a lifetime.
I personally love receiving a handwritten note and sadly with the invention of technology it has become a lost art. I believe we can bring this tradition back.
How do practice and teach gratitude to your children? Please share below.
