Stationery and letter-writing isn’t just for adults. It can be a fantastic way to build in more family time with the kids as well. So here are a few tips and tricks on how to use stationery to spend more time as a family.
Have a monthly letter writing night to encourage your kids (and yourself!) to reach out to extended family. Write thank you notes for gifts they may have received or write letters to say hello to family you haven’t seen in a while. Setting time aside each month will show your kids just how important keeping in touch with family is, even if you can’t see them all the time.
Use Hello!Lucky’s Happy Mail Book to inspire letter-writing craft projects for your family. It’s a great tool for ideas and also includes tons of pre-made postcards. Your kids can follow along with the DIY projects while having a productive creative outlet.
Write letters to your future selves. This is a fantastic way to develop writing skills while giving your family a chance to think about the future. Decorate them with doodles, hand lettering, and a few photos of what you all look like now. Then save them to be read at the end of high school, college, or 20 years from now!
Use Hello!Lucky’s Be the Change Book to encourage your family to become more aware of social issues. The book includes over 16 different creative projects for civic and community action that you and your family can participate in together.
So schedule a family night (or a few!) for letter-writing and craft time to get the creative juices flowing. Your kids will love the activities, and you’ll get some much needed family time.
