hmmm i was thinking send him and have it mailed back but maybe passing on him would be better? I could include a pack of stamps.

what would be best. Is it a hassle to ask people to send what he did to one address and him to a differnt address and would people have a problem with me giving there address to someone else to have liam passed on

Im still working through the details here just know what my finished goal is

I would just have people send him back so that your kids can see him more. KWIM.

Re: Flat "Liam" Scrapbook....Can Liam come visit you?

I did a Flat Stanley with my class once, and we had him mailed back each time, so we could update our map with where he'd been, and so we knew where he was. The only exception was when I had a cousin in Ireland mail him to a cousin in England because it didn't make sense for him to go back across the ocean so often.

For example, I noticed a PP is in Niagara Falls, ON. It might make sense for me to mail to her, or her to mail to me, and then one of us to mail back to you.

Yep mail him back each time.

Have them take a picture of Liam doing something in the area. And do a journal entry.

Re: Flat "Liam" Scrapbook....Can Liam come visit you?

that makes sense so if its in the states have him sent back and for international type visits let him go a few places in the same area and then come back......

how long does it take for overseas mail like to canada or to germany... we would love both but Im wondering if we should do them at the end because they will take a long time :/

I have a USA mailing address (MI) if you want to mail to me, I could then mail to the other Canadian mama. Although I don't really think it takes much longer for regular mail to come to Canada.

I will just pick it up in the USA and drive it back with me to Canada. Its a 5 min trip.

I think I will do this with my kids too, but include 2 scrapbook pages with it as well. One to be his "home" (with a "bed" pocket for his safekeeping) and one for the family to scrapbook his journey & then send it back to us. As the scrapbook pages come back you could put them all together & make a nice journal out of it.

So fun! We did something like this in school. I'm in MN if you want to send some flat people my way! My hubby is a dairy farmer so I will take your flat people on tractor rides
