Handmade Thank You Cards

Making Thank You CardsOur youngest daughter recently had a rainforest birthday party. Rather than buying the pre-packaged thank-you cards, she decided to make her own.

  1. She started by placing a photograph of each child at the party on the front of a blank note card. Next, she used stickers to decorate the cover with the first initial of each child’s name, and rainforest animals.
  2. Inside the card she stamped a “Thank You” message and signed her name.
  3. The last step involved writing the first initial of each child’s name on the envelope (I wrote the rest). I made sure to have an alphabet chart handy in case she needed to double check the correct letter formation.

It was hard work, but when she was finished, she was one proud girl.



With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
