Children Benefit from Writing Cards

children thank you cards

Children benefit from writing cards: thank you cards, holiday cards, get well soon, etc…  According to Circle of Moms, “The practice of writing these notes helps kids develop critical social skills that are essential to maintaining strong relationships.”

 

Developing the habit of sending cards can be challenging.  I wanted my son to know, and feel, the importance of writing cards.  In our home, we create a calendar with our family and close friends birthdays, anniversary’s and special events.  We spend a week or two creating art for the card.  The first week of each month, we send out everyone’s cards for that month.  I learned it was easier to focus on sending things during the month instead of trying to mail it for the exact date.  Now, my 5 year old son has special relationships with family he has not yet met.

 

When sending an email, giving a verbal thank you or even a text message is easier or seems sufficient, the act of writing a heartfelt card is becoming a lost art.  ”Perhaps the most important benefits are that it helps kids to think about someone else’s feelings while developing a habit of thankfulness.” Proverbs 31 Woman

 

Since we now have you thinking about it, we want you to know: We have the products to make card writing with children a fun family activity!

Cards

The Create a Card series is so much fun.  Blank on the inside and your child can decorate the outside with a scene of stickers!

 

World of Thanks is similar to the Create a Card but with a thank you note inscribed for you.

 

We have simple blank note cards for any occasion.

Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces!

Teething Necklace

We now carry Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces for your teething children!  We are so excited to have this line here at Simplicity ABC.  This is a natural way to soothe your baby through the teething process.

Baltic amber has been used for centuries for teething and is renown for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties, which is how it can be helpful for soothing red inflamed cheeks and gums. In addition to assisting to reduce pain, drooling (for which amber is said to work by stimulating the thyroid glands) and irritability that is often associated with teething, amber beads have also been claimed to relieve eczema, speed up wound healing and stave off ear and throat inflammation, amongst many other ailments. ~ bellybelly.au.com

The effects are actually said to come from the beads touching skin, when body heat causes the amber to release succinic acid. The beads should NOT be chewed at all and the necklace should be short enough so that it cant be placed into the mouth. ~mammagoose.com

Baltic amber has healing properties due to its high succinic acid content. Of all types of amber, Baltic amber contains the most succinic acid, which makes it the most valued.  According to Amber Artisan’s, Baltic amber also helps with


•Immune boosting properties

•Radiates soothing energy and absorbs negative energy

•Calms nerves, stimulates intellect

•Recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic

 

Amber resin has a long history of being used in sacred incense and worn as a healing stone by Asian and American Indian cultures for centuries. This organic gem can date between 1 and 360 million years.
