International Postcard Swap

We signed up for the International Postcard Swap over at Playing by the Book and have been having a great time sending the postcards to our families we were allocated.

Maxi helped write the cards, letting everyone know about the boys favorite book Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman and Ben Court.

Mini decided that he likes the taste of stamps.  We were somewhat disappointed that our village post office and that of the two closest to us didn't have any interesting picture stamps, so sorry folks.

The boys also looked up the destinations of their postcards in their atlas, Germany, Canada, USA x2 and UK.

They then stuck the relevant flag in their sticker book on flags of the world, which was £2.99 from Amazon.

The following day we took a trip to our nearest post box and carefully posted the postcards to our swap families.

We have started to receive our postcards and I will be doing a post on what we are doing with them as soon as they all arrive.

This is a great swap and I would recommend more people to join the next time Zoe does one.  I also want to say thank you to Zoe as I understand that this was very much hard work.
