Dear Ms Cards Etiquette,
My grandma is sick, and I want to make her feel better. My mom said I can send a card, but I don’t know what to say. What should I say?

Dear Jenny, it’s very nice of you to send your Grandmother a card! Have your mom help you pick out a nice Get Well card, and then you can put a special surprise inside, to help cheer your Grandma up. Here are some ideas:
- Draw a picture for your Grandma, and put it inside the card. Think of what your Grandma likes, and draw a picture of that. If she has a dog or cat, you could draw a nice picture of her pet. If she likes flowers, draw a pretty bouquet.
- Have your Mom help you press some flowers, and put those inside the card. All you need to do is get some paper towels and a book (a phone book works really well). Fold the paper towel over a small flower, and put it inside the book. Then set something heavy on top of it, and wait for a day or two for the flower to dry.
- Write your Grandma a short letter. Tell her you’re sorry she’s feeling sick, and that you hope she feels better soon. Then also tell her about yourself. Talk about what you’ve been doing in school, or what you like to do for fun. Grandmas always like to hear how their grandchildren are doing!
I hope those ideas help! I’m sure your Grandmother will be very happy to get your card, no matter what you put inside it.
