World Letter Writing Day, September 1st

Do you put a handwritten note in your kid's lunch box every day? I do sometimes, but let's be honest, moming at 7:00 am is hard y'all!!

But I am definitely a pen and paper girl in a digital world, so I LOVE a handwritten note. Today, in honor of World Letter Writing Day, I jotted down a little note for each of my kids and tucked it into their lunch boxes so they'd know I was thinking of them while we were apart. 

If lunch box notes aren't your thing, maybe leave a Sweet Dreams note on your kid's pillow one night. Letter writing is a dying art, and I love the idea of sharing it with my kiddos to keep it alive a little longer.

Want to do more? Here are three activities you can do to celebrate World Letter Writing day:

1. Write a letter

Send a heart felt note to a friend or loved one to let them know you're thinking of them! Or leave a kind letter on your favorite neighbor's door to let them know you like having them around.

2. Teach your kids

Find your kids a pen pal (It can totally be family or a friend who's moved away! My daughter writes to her Aunt, and they both love it!) and teach them the ins and outs of putting pen to paper.

3. Read some letters

One of my favorite non fiction books written in letters is Dear Exlie. I also loved Ella Minnow Pea, a fictional story in letters.

Looking for a book to share with your little ones to inspire a love of writing? Try The Day the Crayons Quit, or Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type (or any in this hilarious series)
