Whether it's Christmas gifts, birthday presents, or any other reason to say thanks, this super-easy personalized activity will give everyone something to smile about.
Ask your child to write a message of gratitude on a chalkboard (or she can dictate one to you) and have her pose with the present. Take a photo, then print and mail it?or, for instant gratification, e-mail it. You child gets to show off how much she loves her gift, and the gift-givers will really feel the love.
