A couple years ago I signed up for a yahoo group called Postcard Kids. The idea behind this is to see if you can trade postcards with somebody from every state and as many countries as you can. I pinned a large United States map and a world map up on our wall and everytime Dakota and I received a new postcard we would find the state or country it came from and put a small sticky flag on there. This helps Dakota when we study Geography during homeschooling. I always request the person mailing us the postcard to write some sort of interesting tidbit about their area on the back of the postcard.
Here's some of our collection and a few favorites...
This one shows the outdoor market in Malaysia.
St. Petersburg, Russia
New Zealand - we actually traded boxes with a family in New Zealand (not just a postcard.) They stuffed a shoebox full of neat candy, books and things from where they live and we did the same thing. It was interesting to try some of the candy they mailed us.
