    Need suggestions on how to thank a large group of people

    Yesterday I received a baby gift, big sister gift and big brother gift for the kids from the parents of the kids in Jillian's pre-school class. This was totally unexpected and such a nice gesture from them. Anyway, it's from 16 kids and I am not sure how to go about thanking them. I would rather not have to write 16 individual thank you's. Any suggestions on the best way to go about this?

    If it were me I would write the thank-you notes. I wouldn't give a gift as a "thank you" because that would then obligate them to have to write you a note!

    Maybe somebody has a more creative suggestion...

    Can you write a nice thank you on a colorful piece of paper and have it posted where they check the children in at preschool? Then everyone would see it.

    In DS' schools, I have always seen one note that the mom writes and it is posted next to the door so that everyone sees it at pick-up. Jann

    I thought about doing this, but some kids take the bus and the parents aren't there.

    Does the school do a newsletter? Maybe you could ask the teacher to print a small note from you.

    At Walmart.com you can have photo thank you cards printed I think? Or maybe Kim does some.

    16 thank you notes...you could make them very generic---maybe printed on the computer and signed by you and Jillian, maybe have jillian sit and draw a bunch of pics over the next week and hand them out with a note of thanks at the bottom.
