Labor Day Letter Writing Activity for Kids

labor-day

Celebrate first responders this Labor Day—or any day! Kids can write letters to first responders, thanking them for the work they do and the help they selflessly provide. This writing activity helps children to better understand and appreciate the things doctors, nurses, paramedics, the police, fire fighters and other first responders do for the community every day.

Not only can your kiddo celebrate the holiday and learn more about what first responders do, they can practice their writing skills too!

Materials You’ll Need

  • Notebook or lined paper
  • A pencil, pen or marker
  • Construction paper or poster board
  • A glue stick
  • Scissors

How-To Activity Steps

  1. Help your child to choose a type of first responder to write to. They don’t need to choose a specific person. Instead, ask them to select a job category—such as nurse or paramedic.
  2. Research what the first responder does. If your child isn’t completely sure what the job includes, read books or look up facts online.
  3. Write the letter. Your child can use the information they’ve researched to create a thank you letter in honor of Labor Day.
  4. Attach the letter to a colorful piece of paper. Cover the back of the letter with glue and press it onto the paper, leaving a two- to three-inch border (of construction paper or poster board).
  5. Bring or mail the letter to a firs station, police station, hospital, EMS organization or other place where first responders work.
