Little T and her Christmas Cards

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?

    She’s doing really well with her writing. Class Christmas cards always take an age to write in this house.

    • Thank you! Yes, I agree. She’s really doing well with her writing, although of course her hands are still shaky and still needs help with some of the letters 🙂 My husband and I are really proud of her.

  2. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    How sweet! For several years I would sign the card “kate and” and then he would come sign his name 🙂 It worked for us!

    • My husband and I do that too. The cards little T all signed were cards for her friends and teachers at school 🙂 Though she also signed her grandparents cards. She loves doing it, but can only do about 3-4 cards max a time 🙂

  3. That’s brilliant, well done to her! I have finally done my Christmas cards! My daughter wrote them for most people in her class, my teenage son wrote four for his best friends (the first time he’d done them for a couple of years) and my 11yo son totally failed to do any. He kept saying he was going to, but then didn’t!

    • Well done to you guys to… Don’t worry about your 11y.o. There’s still time! 😉
