i'm sure everyone reads angry chicken's blog, but if you don't, and you have kids age 4 or older who love to paint and get mail, then sign them up for this cool project from house on hill road or wise craft. your kids will paint 5 cards and then mail them off to 5 different kids; in return they will receive 5 cards from 5 different kids from all over the place!
i just signed gillian & aedan up this morning. they are always bugging me to put a stamp on something and mail it into oblivion, and they are also always begging to paint and draw and color and post their artwork using whatever they can find (e.g., tape, gum, glue, hair gel, staples) in any place they can think of (e.g., shower curtain, bed pillow, window, tv) around the house.
this should be fun!
