Father’s Day is almost here! This Father’s Day, why not show dads how much they’re loved with a creative and thoughtful handwritten poem from the kids! The majority of the cards and notes I’ve kept over the years have been the handwritten ones from the heart and their is nothing like preserving a little part of the stage your child is in life in their handwriting. He’ll love it, trust me. And not only are handwritten notes the most thoughtful gift out there, but they can have benefits for the writer too! Pretty cool, huh?
According to experts on educational psychology, handwriting instruction benefits students’ cognitive development as well as motor functioning, such as ideation, spelling, grammar and punctuation. Improving these skill sets can spark educational growth and personal accomplishments. Who doesn’t want that for their kids, right?
Whether it is a limerick, rhyme or haiku, the effort and written sentiment will make dad feel special too. All you need is a little time, a BIC pen or pencil and maybe a little help from a rhyming dictionary (even the best poets need a little help sometimes!)
Happy Early Father’s Day!
