>Do you have someone you admire? Write them a letter telling them how much you enjoy their singing/dancing/books/acting/rock at the Olympics/basketball playing or whatever it is that they do.
Usually, famous people don’t have time to reply to all their mail, but maybe, if you are lucky, you will get a reply back–make sure you include your return address!
Make this a family activity: Get your whole family to write a fan letter to someone they admire.
This activity promotes showing one’s appreciation for others, as well as literacy skills.
