Flat Stanley Project

An online friend of ours organized a Flat Stanley project that we are participating in. I think it will be a great learning experience for him to see where his goes. So this week we decorated a Flat Stanley and mailed him off last night. C wanted to make sure that he had stuff to eat and things to do on his trip. So our Flat Stanley has a donut (yeah, C wanted him to have a dessert on his trip), a soccer ball, a suit case, a book, and an NC State hat. C’s favorite color is red, so he colored Stanley all in red and then we added some NC State clothes and an NC State hat. C really wanted to staple the hat, but then we said well, maybe he won’t always want to wear his hat. The mini book is Magic Tree House. We love that series and C drew a Viking Ship inside the book since we just read Viking Ships at Sunrise. We got the first Tree House book for his birthday last year and have been reading them on and off ever since. It is such a great series about a brother and sister that go on adventures to rescue books. The have gone to Pompeii, Ancient China, Medieval Times, the arctic, and more.

We are getting a Flat Stanley from Joe this week and ours is off to Canada. We can’t wait to see what kind of adventures ours gets to go on. Hopefully, we will even map it out and learn about where they are from. We were already excited to see that Joe’s Flat Stanley went to Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina and that we had been there before.
