Join us ~ Statehood Postcard Swap

postcard swapI am so happy to finally get this post up. My girls are going to be studying American History and the 50 states, plus WA DC this school year. What better way to reinforce the geography than to get a postcard from each state.


How it works:

51 families (one from each state and D.C.) will swap postcards over the next year. Each state will have their own week and will send out 50 postcards, one to each state and D.C., during that week. We will go in the order of statehood (see below).  At the end of 51 weeks we will all have received a postcard from all 50 states plus D.C!


Postcards:

Please send postcards themed to the state that you live in. Walgreens and gas stations usually always have state postcards, but you are also free to make your own as well.  On the back of the postcards, please include 1 to 2 interesting facts or what you like most about living in your state in the message area .  Postage to send 50 postcards is approximately $15.


To join:

email me at mjcaffey7 (at) gmail (dot) com

*****************************************************************************
I don’t want anyone to miss out so If you are interested, but your state is already taken, feel free to sign up for a neighboring state IF you know you will be able to get the cards for the swap. Otherwise send me an email anyways and with enough interest we can put together a second (or more) swap.
