Nouveau Heritage: Social Networking part 2

When I initially crafted my first post I didn't anticipate a part two but here I am again and so soon. This time the focus is on our mini’s. Have kids hand write, draw or craft notes and special tokens to grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and other loved ones. Thus making that social exchange more personal and more heartfelt that those brief moments over the phone or skype/face time. In my household we do this all the time. Handwritten thank you notes are a must. Especially to friends and classmates. It helps keep their skills sharp (particularly in those off months like summer vacation). Letter writing for my 9 year old helps with sentence structure, paragraphs and completing thoughts. My 5 year old benefits from letter recognition and penmanship. They really get into these projects. The grandparents love receiving these love notes and we find them proudly displayed on mantles and refrigerators when we go for visits.  Plus the grand’rents will reciprocate which sets off another round of letter writing. Email be damned!  

Love, 
Mrs. Jones
