Making a List, Checkin’ it Twice

It’s the time of the year when we are all making lists. Some of us are checking them more than just twice. Each year we throw a dinner party around the holidays. That takes at least three to five lists; from the shopping list to the guest list and more. Also, I have two sons so I have to go over their wish list. There is the honey do list to make for my husband. And my youngest son’s birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year so I won’t even go into how many notes and lists I’ve had to make for that one.

But, for most of us the lists that we make stay with us. No one else wants to see what all we have going on and often enough they couldn’t read our chicken scratch anyhow. But, there are some people out there who want to see lists, grandparents! Have your kiddos sit down and write out a list of what they would like for this holiday season. Maybe include a short paragraph as well to grandma and grandpa about how they can’t wait to see them. Or how they want to come over soon and make holiday cookies.

You will be able to sneak in some hand writing practice, teach them how to at least partially compose a letter and your parents will have a keepsake. Maybe even write them back and start a new tradition this holiday season.

Think of how fun it is to receive a letter in the mail now, think of how fun it would be to receive a letter from grandma when you are nine years old?!
