Writing a card for a two-year-old can feel awkward. Obviously, they don't read at this age, but you know the parents will be reading the message. This creates a few options for you.

  • You can direct your message toward the child while keeping in mind it will only be read and understood by the parents until the child is old enough to interpret it.
  • Writing a poem is another good idea. Keep it simple and sweet. There's no reason to get abstract or complex with anything you write on a card for a second birthday. Find an example below that you like and model your wording after it.

keep your message short, sweet, and to the point.
