Benefits of Thank You Cards For Kids
Okay, I know it might seem easier after a birthday party or holiday to just write your own thank you notes on behalf of your kids, but letting your kids help out by making their own thank you cards is so worth it.
When you let your kids make their own thank you notes for friends and family, not only are you checking something off your list, but you’re also setting a good habit for them that they will hopefully keep forever!
Being thankful is a wonderful gift to give your kids and expressing that gratefulness with others is something you’ll love to see as a parent. I love that these cards are an easy way to build that skill while also improving spelling, handwriting, and more.
When to Use Printable Thank You Cards For Kids
At first, I thought I would only be using these thank you cards for kids’ birthdays, Christmas, and other gift-exchanging events. And although I do very often use them for saying thank you for gifts my kids receive, we have started pulling them out for just about everything!
Here’s just a few of the times my kids have asked to use these fun printable thank you cards for kids:
- Christmas, birthdays, Valentine’s day, etc.
- Tied to a teacher appreciation gift
- For a friend that did something kind
- To grandparents for a special day
- For a babysitter the kids loved
- To each other when they share, teach, or do something else nice
No matter how you use these cards, they will be so loved by those who receive them. And the bonus is that it’s teaching your children such a good lesson about thankfulness.
So keep a stack on hand and remember to pull one out when your child is feeling grateful!
The best age To Start thank you cards for kids
There’s no right age for thank you cards! But how you use them may differ depending on how old your children are.
For older elementary school children and teens, they could simply fill out the cards on their own and you can help with the delivery!
For younger children, you may want to give them a little more prompting about ideas for what they could write.
And for preschool kids and even younger, you can have a chat about what they are thankful for, write it for them, and have them color the card before delivering!

My HP+ printer that uses Instant Ink might just be my favorite thing for printables like this. I love it because we can use as much color ink as you want for one low cost starting at $.99/ month for ink. Try it out for free here!
After they are all printed and cut out with your favorite scissors, then all you have to do is help your children fill out the cards! You can pass them out as they are, or grab some fun envelopes to put them in.
