Try this!

If you have a far away friend or your preschooler does, consider picking up some visitor guides for your area and sending them on. I thought of this recently while getting a package ready to send out in the mail. After thinking about it, I decided I was quite clever. :)These will be great for cutting and making collages or goodness knows what other crafts can be made from some of the animal pictures and what not.

Cali made a little friend last year when we participated in a book swap. We kind of follow the little guy on his family's blog.

Recently we attended a weekend festival and Cali passed a booth selling books. In fact the author was selling them and signing them too. She remembered her little friend and told me to get him one of the books. I found it very sweet that she still thinks of him so I did. We included the visitor guides with his package. Hopefully he will have a fun little Alaska afternoon thanks to his far away friend Cali.

*I will send visitor guides to the first 5 people who would like them. So if you'd like some and think they'd be fun for your brood, comment to let me know and I will contact you to get an address for mailing. Then you can have a fun Alaska afternoon too! :)

Great post! Did you know that I am co-hosting a summer swap for kids on my blog? We would love to have you join in the fun! Tomorrow is the last day to sign up.

I forgot to mention that we are studying all fifty states and would love to receive some visitor guides!

Sounds like a fun idea! We have some family out of state - it might be fun to send them some things like this. We'd be happy to have some Alaska stuff if you'd like to send it. How old are your girls? Paige is 4, and it might be fun to have a pen pal from across the country!
