Creative snail mail

Instead of writing their journal prompts this morning, I had the kids write letters instead. Letter-writing is such a lost art.
To make it more fun, we drew pictures to go with our letters, and I used a thick Sharpie to decorate the envelopes, too.

Even the kids got into the envelope art. My sweet MiddleBoy (6) did the envelope below for his Poppy.

Everyone loves to get mail, and it's such a personal way to communicate.

I've saved my Mimi's letters, and can recognize her handwriting on anything...

Send some funky mail, y'all! People cherish and appreciate it more than you may realize. :)
