A while ago I wrote about collecting postcards. Since then we have exchanged postcards with family and friends. Here are a few of the postcards we’ve added to our collection …
the smallest castle in the world (another from my dad in the UK)
(from Debi and her son of go explore nature)My son is now very interested in sending and receiving mail. And postcard swapping (and letter writing) has been a great meaningful way to play with his newfound interest in reading and writing. The postcards have also opened up many discussions about art, animals, travel and different cultures.
Another blogger who has been postcard swapping is Amanda of HomeAge, who has been receiving some wonderful postcards through PostCrossing – see her postcards from among other places China, the US, Canada, New Zealand and Croatia here.
Now that you have seen the fascinating and beautiful postcards that you could receive you will be keen to join the international family postcard swap hosted by Zoe of Playing by the Book. You can read about how to participate here along with a review of a lovely sounding book about sending a hug through the mail. You need to sign up by Friday April 30.
