Postcrossing Anyone? {Geeky Fun}

Here’s a fun family activity that is educational and fun. We started Postcrossing about two years ago. When we go on our travels, we try to pick up interesting postcards that we can send to some lucky person somewhere around the world.  We started this so that the kids could learn more about geography, and I was surprised to learn about places I had never heard of before. This is also a great classroom project for kids of almost any age!

Basically, you sign up with Postcrossing, and they will tell you where to send your postcard.  You even get to see the person’s profile, and find out what kind of postcards they would like.  Once your postcard is received, your profile is listed next in the cue to receive a postcard.  How exciting!  You can start a scrapbook, or just keep the one online.

Here’s some we have sent.

And here’s some we received!

Here’s our personalized map showing where we have sent to and received from.
Hope you try it out, and enjoy it!

Travel Party "Wish you were here" Adult Bday!

We sent this Party {in a box} to our Nana (Shhh, hope she doesn’t see this, cuz I think they’re doing it this week!) But I wanted to enter the CSI project’s (Create Something Inspiring) party ideas challenge! I posted a sneak peak of this earlier, and I don’t have “real party” pictures yet. Nonetheless, here it is!

Wish you were here!

This is a travel theme – for as long as my sister and I can remember, my Nana has loved geography, globes, everything to do with travel. She has done some traveling, but still hopes to get to the Promised Land. I believe she will!

Here are the photos of her Party {in a box} made with love and inspired by her warmth, brilliance and loveliness!
