Creative Letter Writing Ideas for Kids to Try
Interactive Stationery Sets with Kid Appeal!
eeBoo knows how to grab visual attention and their stationery sets do just that! Sweet sets of woodland printed paper and envelopes come in a hard cardboard case, and come with a letter writing guide book to help kids figure out what to say, how to format a letter, and how to address it. Interactive stationery sets like their Fold and Mail envelopes combine paper and envelope into one! Kids close the envelope with a sticker of their choice. Choose from Paper Doll (yes, kids can dress her up to their liking with 26 included outfit stickers!), bandana, camp out, fairies, and more.
DIY Tiny Mail Kits for Crafty Fun
Tiny Mail Kits from Leafcutter Designs may be small but they’ll get big attention! Letters and envelopes no bigger than a fingernail, with a magnifying glass to read your tiny but big-hearted message! Or send a tiny package with a mini treat inside. Tiny Mail Kits include boxes, wrapping paper, micro-sized rubber stamps and ink, diminutive paper and envelopes and a very fine point marker to write your missive. They do, however, need to be placed into a larger envelope to be mailed!
They wrote the book on letter writing
Happy Mail is a book all about writing letters published by Quarto Kids. It’s the perfect gifting book for crafty kids! Older kids will love trying various hand lettering styles, or cutting and pasting, drawing and designing their own customized cards. Have kids of all ages try the 30-day letter writing challenge to see the many people in their life they could mail a letter to. In the back of the book are over forty tear-out letters and postcards for mailing. It’s the perfect combination of book and craft.
Address envelopes with personalized style
Stuck on You, an Australian brand founded by a mom of three, just launched their creative personalized stationery. Celebrate each child’s individuality with monogrammed cards and postcards, perfect for those thank you notes after Christmas and birthdays. Kids will love having their own address labels in a font style and color of their choice, from monogrammed lettering, to designs of dinosaurs, robots, animals, pirates, fairies, princesses, and more. For younger kids, parents can write out thank you’s and other greetings, and have kids apply the stickers themselves – it’s a great introduction to letter writing for littles!
