pen pal kit

raise your hand if you love getting fun mail.
{ jumping and waving both hands in the air!}

this week we are sharing fun ideas that have to do with good old snail mail.
 hopefully you'll be inspired to make someone's day with a surprise in their mailbox.
 (and you never know... maybe they'll send ya something back!!)
. . .

when i was a little girl i wanted a pen pal so bad.
like really bad.
there was one person willing to make my dreams come true.
that person was my grandma.  :)

i cannot tell you how over the moon excited i was when i received that first letter in the mail.
i felt special.
i felt loved.
and i felt lucky to have such an awesome grandma!
{i am so thankful i kept this all these years. it's so special to me.}

so i thought.
why not make a pen pal kit for my kids to mail to their future pen pals

anyone can be a pen pal:
  • grandparent/grandchild
  • friends
  • cousins
  • aunts and uncles
  • even people who have never met before

things we are including in our kit:
  • paper
  • envelopes
  • pens
  • stickers
  • stamps
  • a treat
  • a box to keep all the letters in. you may want to make 2 of these. 1 to keep. 1 to give away.
(for the box i just used a cheap pencil box and adhered the pen pal box topper with glue dots to the top)

we are also going to include this letter:

so tell me.
