Does this scenario sound familiar? You ask your kids to write (or draw) a little something for grandma and grandpa – in thanks for the holiday gifts – but all you get is “no I don’t want to!”
We feel your pain (because many of us at Shutterfly go through the same ritual with our kids), so have come up with a fun solution.
Create mad-libs concept thank-you cards using a fun photo of your kids. It couldn’t be simpler and we can almost guarantee your kids won’t whine about having to write their thank-you cards. That’s something to be thankful for.
First, select a greeting card style. Upload a photo of your kids (whether it’s in front of the pile of opened presents or in front of the tree). Add a greeting something similar to this:
Thank you for my new ________. I love it and can’t wait to ________ it.
The kids can fill-in-the-blanks later with the details and it doesn’t matter whether they’re at the crayon stage or into penmanship, each thank-you card should take no more than a minute.
Imagine how thrilled the grandparents will be to get a photo of their grandkids and thank-you cards at the same time. You’re raising them well.
