Operation Flat Stanley!!

I began to tell you in my last post about an exciting project that Aidan and I have been invited to participate it and then I left you hanging! Well do you all remember the story of Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown? For those that don't, Stanley Lambchop and his younger brother Arthur are given a big bulletin board by their Dad for displaying pictures and posters. Stanley hangs it on the wall over his bed. During the night the board falls from the wall, flattening Stanley in his sleep. He survives and makes the best of his altered state, and soon he is entering locked rooms by sliding under the door, and playing with his younger brother by being used as a kite and one special advantage is that Flat Stanley can now visit his friends by being mailed in an envelope. A few of us in the group are going to make a flat version of ourselves and our Children! We will then post them, accompanied with a journal to whoever is next in the chain, at the same time we will receive someonelses flat selves! We will then fill in the journal and take some photos of the Flats enjoying some adventures and forward it on to the next in chain. This will continue until we receive Flat Vicky and Flat Aidan back and can read about their adventures from all over the World! I am so excited and already cannot wait to receive the journal back again. I know a few of you work with young Children so I will post the Offical Link to the Flat Stanley Project here in case it could be useful to you as an Educational project

I will let you know when our first Flat Visitor arrives!
