Sorry I got this up so late today, I'll probably post Dare 17 in an hour or something, if not look for it tomorrow.

This dare is about writing, for them! They say there are many different parts of reading and the most complicated is supposed to be writing. How can we expect our kids to do well in school and become good readers and writers if we don't have them write? We talk to them, we read to them, but do we have them write?

Obviously with a baby this is pretty much impossible, but with a younger child you can have them write something even if it just looks like scribbles to you. You encouraging them to write and doing something with them gives them a reason to enjoy it and think it is important. With the older kids, why not take this time to have them write Grandma a Mother's Day Note, or if you're doing this later, why not have them write Daddy a Father's Day Note. If you've just stumbled across this long after those days have passed, it must be somebody's birthday coming up.

Don't like any of those suggestions, why not just practice handwriting skills with your older kids? Maybe they're mastering spelling their name if they're younger, have them try writing it.

I know you can come up with something, share your thoughts on this dare with us.
