We have one last project to finish off our school year and I’m hoping to be able to receive assistance from you. You all are always so great to respond and I have one final “school year” favor to ask. Our third grader is going to do a “Flat Susie” project. She has made a paperdoll, named Susie, that she would like to send on an adventure around the United States. Normally, these projects ask you to make Susie your “guest” for a few days, snap a picture or two, and add a few lines and the snapshots to a journal that is included in the envelope with Susie. This chronicles a “geography-style” adventure for our daughter and makes learning the facts a lot more fun. We are hoping to do this particular project with a slight twist, that will make it more fun for all of us and even simpler for those of you participating.
Susie would come to your home in the mail. If you visit a museum, bake some cookies, go to the park, feed your cattle, ride a horse, paint your deck, whatever you have the chance to do while she is “visiting”, etc. – lol – and can take a picture or two of Susie “participating”, that would be awesome. Then if you could email me the pictures and add a few lines to her online journal, you would just mail her on to the next address on the list included with her in the envelope. The final person on the list will send Susie back home. We will post her progress and share the fun with all of you, as she travels.
If you would be willing to have Susie as a guest in your home, please post it in a comment, below, and then send your mailing address to me at email@example.com. Use this same address to email pictures and your journal entry, so we can post it in Susie’s online journal.
Once we have all the addresses, I will email you a schedule of Susie’s journey, so you have a rough idea of when to expect her. Thanks so much for your help in making this fun project a reality for our little adventure queen!
