Sending thank-you notes is a wonderful habit to get your kids into, and this fill-in-the-blanks letter idea from Vintage Chica is a great way to get them started. [via The Crafty Crow]

    This is easy… I tried this for my daughter’s recent birthday gifts, and it went very well. Draw boxes (in pencil!) where a child should write (in marker or crayon) “Dear” and “thank you for the” and “Love, [child’s name]”. Also make an area for a picture or decoration. Have the child write/draw in the template. THEN, erase your pencil guidelines, and make color copies. This allows the entire note to be handwritten by the child, but it is also fill-in-the-blank and easy for young writers. My 1st grade daughter was able to do her thank-you notes with very little fuss in about an hour.
    Alas, I did not save an example to post here.
