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!

Thanks for the comment on our art-we had fun. I just had that thought about the iron tonight! I am going to try goodwill tomorrow.

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. :)
