celticdragonfly: (Maggie Xmas 2006)

Maggie finally is back in school, not out sick anymore. And she has a pile of make up work.

One thing that came home is this Flat Stanley project. They read a book about a boy who was flattened by his bulletin board while he was asleep, and his family folded him up and mailed him to visit a friend.

So she has this flat paper doll person she's to send off. The letter with it says
"I chose to mail a flat version of myself to you. Please take "me" on an adventure with you and please write and tell me where I went. If you could please send pictures, postcards, or anything else that would help my friends and I learn more. You may send it back with a scrapbook, diary, maps or any kind of souvenirs. I will then take what you have sent back to my class and share this with my friends."
Hm. Her Nana and Granddad usually travel often, but aren't right now. So I'm not sure who to ask for this. Is there anyone she knows who would like to help her with this? Everything has to be back to school by March 2nd.

That's a really cool idea and I'd love to help but I have terrible follow through on things like this.

I think there's a flat stanley story where he helps foil an art museum robbery by hanging out in a picture frame pretending to be a painting. It was an awesome story.

I'm happy to help. I've done some Flat Stanley photography before (twice), and can easily take her Flat Maggie on adventures. Shall I send you a mailing address off comments?

My kid sent her Flat Stanley to my mom, who toted the thing around Austin... I would be more coherent, but she's having me check her math homework right now.

You can send this to me if you don't expect too much of a project on my part. But I can write a brief account, buy a postcard frm DC, that kind of thing. Do you have my address, or should I email it to you?

I could take flat Maggie swing dancing, if you want. :) Too bad it has to be back by March 2, or I could take him to San Francisco with us.

I will be in Albuquerque early next month, but I can't promise I'll be too good about sending postcards and such while I'm there since I usually work 12 hour days.

I'd be willing to get Flat Maggie, and I should be able to get it back by March 2nd.

We've got some nice pictures and people here.

Email me at desert_foxb5 at yahoo if you're interested.

Not sure about postage time...but if you check into that - I've got Germany and Peru on my side.

Also, within the continent - Marietta, Chicago, San Fran, and Knoxville, TN.

My parents just left for Egypt and Jerusalem. Although they didn't take Flat Maggie with them, they be happy to write postcards about what they did, if that will help.

I can send some postcards and maps from Australia if she'd find that useful. I may even be able to get them there soonish. Not surev where that would fit in with the current project, but they might come in handy for something in time.
