It is never too early to teach your child how to express gratitude and appreciation.

On Superhero Day (or any other day!), discuss with your child how superheroes are all around us. Discuss how our neighbors in the front lines are helping us by ensuring we have groceries, our mail delivered, and our garbage taken to the landfill. Healthcare workers are taking care of our neighbors who are sick in the hospital.

We are all helping by staying home, but we can show our gratitude by sending our neighbors in the front lines a thank you letter. Even though our little learners can’t write yet, they can make cards by decorating it with their own drawings and pasting in these messages. Help them practice writing their names by signing the cards.

How to use

  1. Discuss with your child how there are heroes all around us.
  2. Make a card for essential workers in your neighborhood and paste the messages found in the printable into your card.
  3. Have your child sign their name in the card. Address it and mail it!

Protect your heroes! Before you begin, have everyone involved wash their hands thoroughly when handling all materials for this project. Use sticker stamps and self adhesive envelopes; or use glue to adhere stamps and to seal the envelopes. Avoid using your tongue for sealing.

Tips

  • For most toddlers and preschoolers, writing their name is hard work. If you find they are struggling or frustrated with signing all the cards, try writing their name first in pencil and have her trace over it.
  • Alternatively, ask your child to sign the first letter of her name.
