Recently, my son had one of his friends move away, and he was pretty sad about it. I thought it would help if he gave him a little "going away" gift that would help them to stay in touch. So, I came up with this simple "stay in touch kit".
The bag contained writing paper, envelopes (already addressed to my son), and stamps. The front of the bag contained the following note:
I hope you enjoy this "stay in touch kit". I have included some paper, envelopes and stamps. I hope you write to me, and I will write back. I am going to miss you, but this way, we can stay in touch. I can't wait to hear about your new school and your hockey team.
This "stay in touch kit" really helped my son feel better about his friend leaving, and he is anxiously awaiting his first letter. I think it is a fantastic DIY gift for kids to give, don't you?
