How To: Make Your Letters Fun


I’ve found that letter-writing is more often than not seen as a chore. I know I’ve mentioned this time and again, but no matter what it seems this perception of letters holds on! Well, I think I’ve finally stumbled upon a letter idea that puts so much more fun into letter writing; but only if you’re the creative type! Everyone loves a well-written letter, so why not spice yours up by turning yours into a haiku? We all learned how to write these poems in 2nd or 3rd grade, so thank your teacher and put that skill to use in a creative and fun way! Or, for stationery you’re handwriting, why not take a page out of da Vinci’s playbook and write backwards? This would be such a fun way to make your recipient try to figure out what you’re writing! No one is ever going to want to read a boring letter again after getting some neat notes in these formats. I’ve never tried writing backwards, but that’s the goal for this weekend! Which method will you try to make your letters a little more exciting?
