Getting a letter in the mail from a loved one is an exciting and heartwarming experience. This summer, if your child is trying overnight camp, make sure you're caught up on what's going on in their life by establishing the tradition of sending a letter home. While the typical letter home for many kids is a monument to brevity, this year as you help your kid pack, here's a sneaky suggestion—give your child templates for three versions of a "Deluxe Letter Home." Stick them in your child's bags with some stamped envelopes and a pack of pens and colored pencils!
In this activity, your child will practise writing a letter home before they go off to camp.
