Sandy Hook Love Letters

Wednesdays with Whitney
By Whitney Tang
In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre I want to encourage crafts with a more selfless aspect to them this week. As nannies, we understand how impactful a child’s love can be. So why don’t we send some of this love in the direction of those heartbroken families who are now left without it? Help your little ones create Christmas cards or unique artwork to let the victims of Newtown know they are loved.  

Stickers, glitter, or markers – let this craft be a free for all which allows each child to express the message they want to send. Encourage the children to write letters of support, or have them dictate as you write their words for them.

A child’s loving words might not be eloquent and they might not be perfect, but they are exquisitely healing. And no one can use that more than the families in Newtown. Send the “love letters” to Sandy Hook Elementary School and spread a little warmth this Christmas season.

Send your letters and cards to:
Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Sandy Hook, CT 06482
