Thinking of You Week 2020
Thinking of You Week is a special week of reminding someone you care with a card. This day was designed to create a wave of love caring and happiness. Receiving a card with a sweet handwritten message, especially when it comes out of the blue, is so special. Being thought of is worth celebrating.
Thinking of You Week takes place from 14th till the 21st of June 2020. Of course, you can send a card to that special person anytime in the year!
You can either purchase cards, make your own, or use some of our handy printable cards. We created these specifically for this occasion and we hope you love them. These FREE cards all include a special quote, one of which is sure to fit how you feel towards the recipient.
The start of 2020 has been a challenge, and while sharing caring cards on birthdays is lovely, a thoughtful card shared unexpectedly just feels different.

A Guide to Letter Writing
Written communication is an important skill for children to learn, and writing letters, notes and cards is a great way for kids to practice these skills.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we think letter writing is a fantastic way for Pyjama Angels to stay in touch with their Pyjama Children. All of these activities can be done separately or together via FaceTime, as most of them just require some paper and a pencil.
We have created some examples of fun letter writing activities below that are sure to spark creativity and playfulness in your child.
Scrapbook Card Making
Scrapbooking is such a fun activity that can be tailored to kids of all ages. All you need is scraps of different colourful papers. Cutting up junk mail or old magazines can be useful for extra supplies, as well as any other odd crafting pieces you might have lying around the house, like glitter, pompoms, or stickers. We used double sided tape to stick our scraps together, but you can use regular tape folded over or a good old glue stick. Just rearrange your scraps until they look pretty, stick them down, write a nice message, and you’re done! A thoughtfully hand-made card is sure to delight whoever receives it.

Formal Letter Writing
This easy-to-use format introduces children to a more structured way of writing letters. The name of the writer, date and location are at the beginning of the document, and we start the letter with dear… friend, neighbour, stranger, it’s up to you! For the body of the letter, encourage children to fill up the space. Think about who we are communicating with and what we might like to write, including questions about them and things about ourselves as well. Finish the letter with ‘sincerely’, and perhaps a signature. P.S. stands for postscript, in case there is anything that needs to be added in after the letter.

Hidden Origami Note
This is such a sweet way to send little love notes. Simply write your message on a square of paper, then follow the instructions to fold it in to an origami heart. Nobody will know what’s hidden inside unless they unfold the heart! These are great to pass around to family members, and can also be easily mailed to any far away friends.
