Summer Fun Bag #2: Letter Writing Kit

by Amy on June 18, 2009

letter writing & summer stationary

Here’s another one of our Summer Fun Bags – a letter and card-writing kit.

My girls love sending (and receiving!) mail, but we often forget about this activity. Hopefully this little kit will remind us! I simply gathered up odds and ends of cards, stickers, envelopes, etc. from around the house. I also included a couple index cards with helpful letter-writing words, and names of friends and family for reference. Only thing we’ll need to buy are some cute stamps!

I also created some simple summer, outdoorsy stationery and postcards using some clip art from Microsoft Word. I thought the girls would enjoy coloring and mailing these.

If you would like to print your own outdoor stationery and postcards, here are links to the pdf files. The postcards have separate front and back files – just print the front, then flip the paper over and run it through again to print the back (landscape orientation). I used white card stock for printing.

Happy writing!

Great idea – getting in some handwriting practice, as well as letter writing – and they don’t even realize they’re doing anything educational! :)

I love these! Is anyone else having a problem when you pull up the pdf for the backside? On my computer the backside of the postcards aren’t in the right place.

I so love it when you come up with these ideas and share with us, especially printables. I’m linking my site back to you in a Summer fun post.
