At our house, we love to collect things from our vacations. We collect Christmas ornaments, refrigerator magnets, snow globes and floaty pens. A few years ago, after reading an article in Family Fun magazine, we decided to attempt to collect postcards from each of the fifty states. Thanks to family, friends, our own travels and the kindness of strangers, we've managed to collect a postcard from forty states plus numerous foreign countries.
The other day I came across postcrossing - a postcard exchange project that invites everyone to send and receive postcards from random places around the world. For free! We're mailing our first postcard to Thailand today and are anxious to see where our first postcard will come from.
Pip from Meet Me at Mike's also has a list of 20 Ways to be a Good Penpal.
