summer activities for preschoolers #6
(the sixth in a weekly series of ideas for families with preschoolers...
please feel free to share your own by clicking "comments" below!)

6. keep the postman busy.

Address some envelopes to friends and family you don't often see. Do you hang on to your child's artwork? I keep each week's art (summer activity #4) in a file and bring it out when we post.

We talk about each person the envelopes are addressed to, by

understanding how we know them
remembering visits with them
discussing memories of them.

Then I ask each child to choose some of his or her artwork to send along to that friend or family.

We don't have any expectation for our children's art to be framed by the ones we post to... the idea is just to say hello, we miss you, and we're thinking of you!
