Letter writing for handwriting and spelling practice

Sometimes routine handwriting and spelling worksheets can be bland.

One of the best ways we've found to practice handwriting and spelling? Writing letters!

Every week, the kids write a letter to someone -- their grandmama or Mimi, Daddy, a friend across town, an aunt, or our sponsored child.

We tried something new, too -- Miss Artsy wrote a letter to her favorite Disney cartoon characters, Chip and Dale. Three weeks later, a full-color, autographed photo arrived in our mailbox! It's now proudly displayed on her bedroom door.

If you'd like to write your favorite Disney character, here's the address!:

Walt Disney World Communications
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040

Have fun!

  1. What a great idea! That's so nice of Disney, too, to respond to their little fans. :)
