I'm looking for templates for children to write our sponsored child. I have school age children who have started writing little notes to go to our sponsored child. Sometimes our sponsored child has sent a sheet with pictures with both spanish and english and he checks off what he likes to eat/play/do etc. Is there anyplace I could print these so my children could send them back with their own info on them.

Hi Rhonda! We have some sample letters on our blog that you can use! We also do a monthly blog post with themes to write on to help get our creative juices flowing. :) This month we were talking about birthday cards. In the past, we have done themes like playtime or spring. We provide a global template for sponsored children ages 1-8 years and each of our country offices tweak the templates to match their area and culture. The country offices are given suggestions of topics for their templates. I am including some of these topics and subtopics below so that you can maybe create your own templates if you would like.
