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! :)
