Little T started writing her Christmas cards at the beginning of December. We decided to do them early because … well, she’s only four and just recently learned to write. She probably did about three cards a day and some days, she absolutely refused to write on a single card. I didn’t force her.
She loved writing her name and in some cards, even drew little love hearts on them.
Once the tree was up on though, she seemed in a good mood to finish off her Christmas cards, and that’s exactly what she did! She wrote more than thirty-cards all on her own, for classmates, teachers, friends and even for her coach at her gymnastics class.
Yes, her writing was shaky and a few of them had erasure marks, but at least, she did it all on her own. I had to show her how to do some of the letters, especially the tricky ones. I would offer to do it, but she would always say “I can do it Mum! I know how”.
My little four-year-old has learned a lot since she started school. I’m a proud momma 🙂
Have you done and sent all your Christmas cards yet?
