We’re so excited to welcome guest blogger Mindy Lockard, aka The Gracious Girl, to our humble little space on the World Wide Web. As we mosey on out of April and into May, we thought she would be perfect to share her tips on rainy day activities to do with kids. Enjoy!
It’s said that April showers bring May flowers…
That said, we’ve found a fun way to pass the time inside by showering our loved ones with handmade treasures in the mail.
After all, who doesn’t love a letter in their mailbox?
Oh and don’t forget a sweet little snack to get the creative juices flowing. Like these lemon cookies. Darling.
Next, get creative! Handwritten letters are a gift, and so it’s okay to get creative with your words and the paper you put them on. Letters from the heart, made by hand are a timeless treasure!
Next get writing. Letters can be long or short. Sometimes we ask questions that we hope will prompt a letter in return and other times we just send a quick note to say…
Passing on the tradition of sending sentiments through the Post isn’t just a great way to make a loved one’s day, it’s a fantastic habit to instill in our children for a lifetime of confidence through the handwritten word!
So get out your umbrellas friends and let the showering of handwritten notes begin!
