Alert:: Great idea for Teacher Appreciation Week
We are excited to team up with Tiny Prints to share their all new color in thank you notes. These mini works of art are the perfect way for your kids to have fun while sending a thank you note. Tiny Prints has tons of different designs that can be completely customized. To make these thank you notes a little sweeter we are sharing a easy cookie recipe that you can make with your little ones. These cookies are so delicious and easy to package for a scrumptious thank you that will be greatly appreciated!
Let your child help you pick the perfect design from the many options available on TinyPrints.com! Cards come in different shapes, sizes and colors. Check out our favorites designs below.
TinyPrints will donate $5 for every card posted to instagram using hashtag #tinythanks, up to $10,000, to TNTP (www.tntp.org), a non-profit that helps ensure all kids get excellent teachers.
Once you get your cards give your child crayons and let them go wild with creativity!

These cookies definitely require one or two taste tests ;) Have your child package the cookies in clear party bags and seal with decorative tape. If you plan to hand deliver your thank you notes (great touch) use twine to tie the cookie package to the envelopes. If you are mailing them, put the card and cookies in a padded envelope.
