Free Printable Thank You Cards for Kids
I realize now that there were things I could have done to make the entire process of writing thank you cards more fun for everyone. Here are a few things I’ve learned over the years including some fun, free printable thank you cards for kids.
What you need to start working on your thank you cards for kids
Thank you cards – I have several free options below that you can print out. Or, if you prefer, you can order fill in the blank cards if you prefer. These unicorn thank you cards are really cute.
Gel pens – I prefer writing cards with gel pens because they are bright and colorful but don’t smudge or bleed like markers do.
Get organized first
Make sure that you have cards, envelopes, return address labels, pencils or pens, stickers and whatever else your child will need before you begin. Waiting for mom to find something is not fun.
Don’t try to do it all at once
Don’t expect your child to write a huge stack of thank you cards all in one sitting. Have them write a few at a time.
Phone calls are good too
Allow them to call and thank relatives they are close to. A phone call to Grandma may be the perfect incentive to write the other four thank you cards.
Let them write the thank you cards the way they want with crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc. It’s the thought that counts. Let them make a thank you picture if they are not yet secure with their writing and spelling skills.

Fun free cards
Use free printable thank you cards for kids instead of trying to get them to use thank you cards made for adults. Here are a few places I found free printable cards.
Encourage your child to be creative
Maybe they would rather make a collage, a salt dough thank you ornament, or record a song to say thank you. As long as the person is thanked for their gift, does it matter how?
How do you make writing thank you cards fun for your child? Or are you only concerned that they get done? Have you ever used free printable thank you cards for kids instead of the store purchased variety?
