Ideas and inspiration for Schools
What do I write?
Stuck for ideas on what to write inside the card? We’ve created a few simple prompt sheets that educators can print here and place in the classroom, to help out kids suffering from writer’s block!
Dowload from our Toolkit.
Brand your envelope
To help create an actual wave of happiness, we want the receiver of the card, to pay it forward and also send a card! For a gentle reminder, place a Thinking of You sticker at the back of your envelope. These can be printed yourself using our toolkit (L7159 Avery sticker sheet or similar) or cut and paste.
Cards for classmates
Each child writes their name on a piece of paper, these are all put in a ‘hat’ and each pupil makes a card and writes a positive message for the classmate whose name is drawn. Children then talk about how it feels to write and receive the positive messages in the cards.
Make or write cards to thank ‘unsung heroes’ in the local community, eg lollipop ladies, teachers/carers, school aids, school/park gardeners, friendly shop keepers & neighbours, local police and firemen.
Team up with a local nursing care home, children’s hospital ward, charity or even a school in another part of Australia or abroad.
Encourage the children to enjoy writing, and maybe designing, a card and also hopefully receiving one back!
Don't forget our Toolkit!
Our Thinking Of You Week Toolkit contains a beautiful new banner, flyer and event poster, new retailer and consumer handouts, as well as social media cover images and email sign offs.
