Your tot has already learned that the pen is mightier than the sword — a lesson also absorbed by your scribble-covered walls.
Now it’s time to teach her how to look good on paper with kid stationery from Dear Hancock.
The creators of the L.A.-based line believe a handwritten card is a gesture of sincerity worth preserving, and after seeing the beauty of their painted creations, we agree.
Choose from predesigned flat cards (the accessorized pony caught our eye) or customize with an image of the family pet, her favorite lovey, or portrait of the author herself.
Printed locally on Green-e Energy-certified recycled paper and envelopes, the materials are about as close to ecofriendly as you get for snail mail correspondence.
Another worthy lesson whose merits are written on the wall.
Available online at dearhancock.com, $14 for a set of six; custom project prices vary.
