Our original Open When Letters Kit was so incredibly popular that we have had several requests from our readers for a version that is just for kids. You asked, and we delivered! We have an all-new printable pack of Open When Letters for kids that is bigger than ever – over 30 envelope and template options!

Here are the main things that I love about these special letters for kids:

  • The letters can be written for kids of any age! This could be something you do for your child before they are even born, all the way up until they leave for college!
  • This is a gift idea for your kids that is so easy to put together – simply add the envelope label to the outside of any envelope (we used these because they matched the printables’ color scheme perfectly!) and write your own personalized message on the corresponding stationery template or card. Easy! 
  • The envelope and card designs in this kit are so colorful and fun! Our designer Carisa (from Messes to Memories) utilized gorgeous, kid-friendly colors and patterns that are absolutely darling!

I met my husband, in a beginning ballroom dance class at the age of 15. He was my first crush, my first date, and twelve years (to the day) later we married. Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!

  1. You should have mentioned that we are purchasing just the templates… When you say “letters” we are expecting full written ideas for each “open when…” occasion… It is also shown (a full letter) in one of your photos… Dissapointed with the purchase… sorry…

    1. We truly apologize for the confusion. Our store team will edit this post to explain more what the letter writing prompts are and that the letter examples that are pictured are not included. The best part of these cute open when letters is being able to make them personalized to fit your child, niece, nephew and/or grandchild. Again we apologize for any confusion on our part. If you have any further questions you can email our AMAZING customer service team at!

    1. This kit does include a blank envelope cover and stationery template that you could personally write in your own!
