Last spring, someone on a homeschool facebook page asked for families to sign up to be in a postcard exchange. I knew this was something Ruthie would enjoy and decided it was worth the effort. We have had so much fun getting postcards from states, coloring in a map of the states, and reading the unique fact postcards people shared with us.
Right now, all the postcards are displayed on our Christmas card holder by the front door. Ruth has colored in our state map as we have received new postcards. In fact, since she put all the address labels on the postcards, she even recognized some of the names of the families as we received their postcards as well.
At this point, you are probably wondering why I am even sharing about something that has already happened. I mean, you can’t sign up for this exchange right now. So, why am I sharing?
- I have extra postcards and would love to mail them to other families in the U.S. When I ordered postcards from Vistaprint, I ordered 100 when I only needed about 55. If anyone would like a Pennsylvania postcard, please use our contact form, and we will mail one to you. This can get you started on your own postcard collection if you want. (We will not save your addresses for any sort of mailing list. I can’t imagine wanting to have an address list like that anyway.)
- I still need 4 states. If anyone is willing to mail us a postcard from Alaska, Missouri, South Carolina, or New Jersey, we would love to complete our post card set. Again, use the contact form, and I’ll send you our address.
By the way, if you ever get a chance to do a post card exchange like this, I would highly recommend it. It fit right in with the lifestyle of learning that we like to have in our family.
