This paper activity helps kids' friends and family stay up to date by delivering personal headlines right into their mailboxes!
What You'll Need:
- Old newspapers
- Card stock (cut in 4x6-inch pieces)
- Postage stamps
Who are your kids? Where have they been? What are their hobbies? This fun fact-finding activity will help kids express themselves -- and share those expressions with the people who love them.
Have your kids go through a pile of old newspapers, cutting out and gathering words that express who they are, what they've done, and how they feel.
Step 1: Creatively position and glue those headlines on a side of a 4x6-inch piece of card stock. Make sure that all the edges are glued down securely so they can't be ripped off.
Step 2: Decorate those words with colorful markers, if desired.
Step 3: Once the glue and ink are dry (plan for overnight drying time in most climates), add a stamp, an address, a quick "hello" to the back of the card, and drop it in a mailbox.
