Letters For Seniors

Letters for Seniors is an easy way for young children to send messages to our senior citizens during this pandemic or any time to let them know they are not forgotten. Isolation is difficult for everyone, but especially for those in nursing homes and assisted living facilities or someone in your neighborhood. These cute notes from children can mean a lot to someone who is feeling left behind. It is a good way to show children the joy of giving of themselves at an early age. We’ve provided both a color and black and white version.

  • White Paper
  • Pencil
  • Crayons, Markers or Colored Pencils (optional)

Print out enough notes so that each child can write several. You may need to help younger children with the spelling. Encourage them to discuss what they want to write and set them to work.

Check with your local nursing home or assisted living facility to determine a safe way to deliver the messages.
