Flat Stanley Adventures - Plus a Free Download

When I was in the classroom, I absolutely loved giving my students the opportunity to send "Flat Stanley" to a friend or family member. It was so much fun for the students to receive letters, photos, souvenirs, etc. from all around the world.

This past spring, we got to be the recipient of a "Flat Stanley", and it was so much fun!
Here are a few snapshots of our time with Stan~

Flat Stanley loved going for wagon rides...
spending time at the park...

 visiting the library...
 gathering for worship at church...
 voting in our local election...
 going to the doctor for a check-up...
 shopping at the grocery store...
eating chicken casserole...
 and visiting the mountains...
Our return package included prints of these photos & more - as well as the following letter:
Dear Friends,
Flat Stanley had a great time visiting with us! We hope you will enjoy the pictures we took of all of the adventures he had.
He loved riding in the wagon in Caleb. We always made sure to remind him to wear his safety belt.
Going to the park was also another favorite of his! You should have seen him swinging on the swings, sliding down the slides, and playing in the sandbox.
Flat Stanley also joined us on a visit to the library, a checkup at the doctor, and a trip to the grocery store.
On Election Day, he headed to the polls with us and voted for his favorite officials.
While visiting with us, we learned that chicken casserole is his favorite meal and he loves to listen to music.
His last days with us were spent on a fun getaway – where we visited some of our family. He loved the fresh air and mountain views.
Thank you for sharing your special friend with us! He was very well behaved and always made sure to use his manners. We are going to miss him!
Your Friends,
David, Elizabeth, Caleb, and Isaac
