Kid's Mail Swap

I've recently signed my daughters up for a swap....never too young for a swap! You can check it out HERE. They will each be sending 5 postcards to 5 different kids around the world. I think this project is a great way for them to decide what they should write in a limited amount of space. We are sending postcards because they will have a nice picture of Germany on them and it is something they can pick out themselves at the store. Who knows...maybe they will get a pen pal out of this!

I have a large world map that is made of fabric that we will use to display the cards/letters that they receive. We'll attach them around the map with a piece of yarn connected to the appropriate place they were sent form.. I'll update after their swap is complete.

Sound interesting?? The deadline to sign up is May 11th.

What a fun idea! Hope you'll show a picture of your map when the swap is over.

Cute idea! I'm coming over soon to enjoy your outdoor area and to see your new crafts, m'kay?
