Post Cards

I am so excited to tell you about a new activity the kids and I have been participating in.   I am a firm believer in writing.  Writing stuff and then actually mailing it.  We all remember the best part of the day was opening the mailbox to see what came, well at least me. I worry that with all the electronics we lose the sense of connections that items use to travel, that we would actually mail letters.  I wanted my children to have the excitement of letter writing and getting something in return. 

With all that in mind, I reached out to my friends and family that are FAR away, at least several states away and I have wrangled them into a letter/postcard writing campaign.  We are lucky ( for this project)  that we are on the West coast and most of our family is on the West coast.  To my sons, the west coast is a brand new world.  This past weekend we created
and printed our post cards and off they go. It was super easy too.  We searched Google images for images we liked and printed them on card stock.  Cut it down to 4 x 6 and there you go.   I cannot wait to get the responses and see the excitement on the kids’ faces when they get mail from them.  Do you have a favorite childhood activity that you would love to pass on and share with your kids.  Anyone looking for a faraway pen pal?  Hit us up, we love to send and receive mail.
