Print Comm: Writing, "Thank You"!

A Photo Thank You

Saying "Thank You" is such an important trait to teach and reinforce in your child.  This month's print communication project is to simply "write" a "Thank You".  Even if your child is too young to actually compose a thank you note, they can still participate in the process.  By age 4, children should be able to say "thank you" for a gift received in person and help a parent write a thank-you note.  Consider taking a picture of your child(ren) holding up THANK YOU, and send it to someone to whom you want to show gratitude.
Some more IDEAS on how to say Thank You.

Some additional thoughts on giving thanks to share with your child:
1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 107:8

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men,

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Colossians 3:15 - 17

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
