Make a Mini Notes DIY Thank You Card!

In this activity, students will create a mini notebook they’ll attach to the cover of their thank you card and fill it with friendly messages of thanks. Inside the card they can draw a picture, or write a special message to share with the recipient. 

Students can share their creation with a friend, family member, or book-lover for events like:

✂️ Hand Them The (Safety) Scissors

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • improve hand-eye coordination
  • develop focus and attention.

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil, a toothbrush, a fork; button a shirt, zip-up pants, tie shoes; write, type, and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
