Do you know Flat Stanley? Has your child or grandchild done a Flat Stanley project at school? It's fun, it's educational. A co-worker's nephew is doing a Flat Stanley project and so we're doing what we can to add to his project. I took my Flat Stanley tailgating last wkend; but due to the old camera only working some of the time. The pictures I thought I had....weren't there. Errrrrrrrrr, I so need a new camera. My regular camera broke while on vacation a couple of weeks ago, thus I've been trying to use the old one. Very frustrating. So, while Flat Stanley was appropriately colored to be Buckeye for tailgating, those pictures are non existent.
Here's Stanley in Indiana, again on US Route 70. He got his picture taken by a nice memorial to our men and women in service. The Blue Star Highways were started as a way to honor our military after the close of World War II, by ladies garden clubs all across the country.
If you'd like to join in on the project it would be great. You can color your own Flat Stanley and take him places, photograph it and email it to me. Or...you could take my Flat Stanley, print it and go visiting. It's a geography lesson primarily for this particular group of kids; but the kids learn so many other things as well. I like to add some history info, they can find locations on the map etc. It started out as a way to get kids to write letters, to journal; but there are many possibilities. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link if you'd like to color your own Flat Stanley
