What do you do when your poor, isolated homeschooled children are denied the joy of exchanging valentines? Well, you join a swap with other homeschooling families across the nation. Over a period of about 10 days, we received valentines from Washington, Texas, Georgia and other places. We made it a geography project. Some families sent candy, pencils, stickers and information about their states. The packages we sent in return had road maps of Vermont which listed points of interest all around our beautiful state.
We needed something to hold all of our valentines, so the littles decorated these cute little mailboxes I picked up at Target.
