Postcards are the quick snack of the letter-writing world: easy, fun, and sweet. They don't take a tremendous amount of time to make but are still rewarding to send and exciting to read.
Bonus: If you have a young one who is a reluctant writer they might be more inclined to fill the limited space. I know a 7-year-old who wrote in especially large letters and only managed a single sentence!
1. A quote
A line from a favorite movie you saw together, the ridiculous thing that college prof repeated, the word your toddler mispronounces in the cutest way.
2. A recipe
Choose something seasonal (jam! pickles! ice cream!) or share a family recipe.
3. A memory
Were you recently reminded of someone? Why not tell them that you're thinking about them?
4. A dream
If someone makes an appearance in my dreamlife and it isn't too weird, I might tell them all about it. At least they know I am thinking of them?
5. A compliment
Something I appreciate about you is the way…
6. A recommendation
Did you try something new that you just loved? Jot out a quick book review or a list of suggested shows or movies. Or dab on a sample of the nail polish color you love!
7. A funny story
Share an embarrassing moment or a silly pet or child story with someone who wasn't there to witness it.
8. A joke
Bonus points if you save the answer for a second postcard arriving a few days later! I know my kids love trading jokes with their grandparents.
9. A cartoon
Even if you can only draw stick people you can still depict something amusing. In fact your lack of skill might up the humor factor!
Did a particular verse remind you of someone? Do you know someone who could use an extra dose of cheer? Send it along!
Or if you're planning an event consider our party pack of 20 postcards of the same design. Use them for invitations, table decor, party favors, or as part of gift sets.
