Rylan enjoys writing practice, but I still like to break up the more "serious" work with something fun, and also practical, so he can see how writing skills are useful in real life (especially as Mom and Dad do so much of their writing on computer). So, Rylan is now penpal-ing with a friend he grew up with in Israel. Decorating the outside of the card - crayons and glitter glue.
We decided while we were making cards, we should also make a welcome card for Grandma and Pa who are coming to stay with us next week (for a whole month! Can't wait!).
And while Rylan was busy decorating his penpal's card, Damian decorated the inside of Grandma and Pa's card.
Hope the joy the boys felt while creating the cards carries through to those receiving them!
