    In many previous years, we've hosted a private forum here at SHS for those who would like to share addresses and participate in a sitewide postcard exchange between various US states and also countries around the world. Before opening that project back up for the summer, I'd love a "show of hands" for who might be interested. The project can be used as the basis for geography learning, handwriting practice, letter writing, and so much more. (we have a corresponding article of tie-in learning ideas that I'll share, too, if we move forward. In the meantime, if you'd log into the site and let us know if this is something you'd like to be part of? If we get enough interest, we'll kick it off by end of month!

    NOTE: if you vote "yes", I'll even follow up with a PM with more info on how to be involved!

    Hi all. We didn't get enough responses to make this one quite worthwhile this year (I would have liked to have seen at least 10 participants before activating the exchange). However, the poll results are public, as are the comments here. If you'd like to touch base with one another via PM or set up a private social group together on our Groups page where you could exchange addresses, feel free!

    Bummer! I am so sad that snail mail seems a thing of the past... Sometimes I think my kiddo will be the only one who knows on which corner a stamp goes...

    Nope.

    We'll probably be in next year, but I may have to let the P.O. box go for awhile because money and ds has so many pen pals right now that I was afraid your postcards might get lost in the shuffle.

    I took a peek at the Verizon terms of service and privacy policy yesterday and decided that the best way to handle the buyout of Yahoo with my sweet little 82 year old technophobe mother and my former-hacker father who just doesn't get the modern internet is going to be, "We've been so busy that I haven't even had time to check my email but when I saw this postcard/stationery I just couldn't resist because it reminded me so much of you!"

    That should give ds enough time to hone his skills and do something really fun next summer when he's ten.

    Topsy, do y'all just exchange picture postcards of the different places you live or do you get creative as in post secret or Ashleigh Brilliant? Postcards can be their own little do-it-yourself universe kit that doesn't come with an instruction manual.

    I think in the past it has mostly been picture postcards although I think one year a lot of the participants had their kids actually use blank postcards and DRAW their local scenes on them. A fun project for sure!

    I know I'm a little late to the game but wondering if this has taken off. I was set to participate in another exchange until the proverb-ers refused to respect my wishes to remain secular.
