Post Card Exchanges

We are participating in two postcard exchanges this fall.....

One of them is an international exchange, and we are participating as a representative from Danmark. (Allan is from there, I was an exchange student there, and we have a number of great photos from our visits there.)

I'm pretty geeked about how well my postcard creations turned out!

The second exchange is about where we live: Marquette, Michigan. The children helped to brainstorm ideas for this postcard: (You can see the post where we talked about What is Cool About Where We Live Here.)



I'll be dropping most of these cards in the mail tomorrow! I can't wait to start receiving cards from all over the world and helping the children to map out and learn about all of the wonderful places the cards come from!

I love your postcards!! When I hear about postcard exchanges, I picture going out and buying one. Yours are amazing- much more fun than anything you could buy.

1st- Thank you for your great suggestion of getting my son a sensory box of things to spill! Somedays I think I'm too exasperated to think clearly enough to come up with good solutions. You really helped me out here. :)

2nd- That sounds like so much fun- your postcard exchange. :)
