Printable Fill in the Blank Thank You Cards

Let’s be honest.

We all want to raise children who display gratitude. Regularly expressing thanks can help kids learn that other people are spending time and energy on their behalf.

Christmas Coloring Pages

I love these Christmas coloring pages that double as fill-in-the-blank Thank You notes because it is a simple way for kids to say thanks. Younger kids can write these out with help and older kids will be able to complete the task without mom looking over their shoulder.

How to Write a Friendly Letter

Learning the basic structure of a thank you note happens by organically by filling in the blanks. Kids will easily learn how to write a blank thank you card in the future based on how easy it is to fill in the blanks on this one. I know adults who still struggle with thank you notes because they are unfamiliar with the simplicity of a friendly letter:

  • Heading
  • Greeting
  • Body
  • Closing
  • Signature

How to Write a Thank You Note

The thank you note is a form of a friendly letter. It can be simplified even further like we did for the printable fill-in-the-blank thank you notes or expanded on to include additional details. Here are the basic parts of a thank you note:

  1. Heading – In a very informal note, this is left off. For most thank you notes and friendly letters, the heading is the date. If you want to get a little fancier, you can also include your return address above the date.
  2. Greeting – This is the “Dear _____, ” portion of the letter. Feel free to get creative it you are related to the recipient!
  3. Body – For thank you note purposes, this can be broken down to three simple topics: what you received, how you are going to use it, and a general happy statement of summary. For younger kids, eliminate the summary statement like we did on the printable fill-in-the-blank thank you notes. For older kids {and adults}, each of those areas can be expanded with an additional sentence or short story about the topic.
  4. Closing – This is a short, capitalized expression like: Love, Sincerely, Thanks, etc.
  5. Signature – Sign it and you are done!
