don't you love to get a parcel in the mail
A couple of weeks ago, I received a package in the mail.
It has quite the ancestry.
This package came from Greg at Males in Early Childhood in Australia.
He got a parcel from Keirna from Learning for Life in Northern Ireland.
She got a package from Karen from Flights of Whimsy in Melbourne, Australia.
She got a parcel from Maureen at Strongstart in Comox, BC, Canada (just up the road from me).
She received a parcel from Sherry and Donna at irresistible ideas for play based learning (again) in Melbourne Australia.
Her package came from Scott from Brick by Brick from Tenessee, USA.
Scott got his package from Mom and Kiddo at What do We Do All Day in Brooklyn, New York.
Big city Mom received a package from Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns in California.
Her package came from Kylie at Our Worldwide Classroom in (once again) Australia.
Kylie received a package from MaryLea at Pink and Green Mama.
And that is where my trail ran cold.
My package has an impressive pedigree!
The kidlets and I examined what was in the parcel.
We chatted about where it came from - Australia. And figured it was not big enough to fit a kangaroo. Too bad. They were quite excited to see Animalia - which is one of the best alphabet books ever and which they already know and love. We figured the map would be very useful so that we don't get lost, in case we wanted to visit. We should plant the seeds right away, and maybe they will be flowers when we come back in grade one. And Little Rascal was a hit.
Little Rascal is a dragon whose wings are not huge, who does not have 2 heads, who does not have big front claws and who cannot keep up and play with the bigger dragons. But he is just the right size to rescue his friends. The kidlets love the story and the illustrations. More Little Rascal stories have been requested by the kidlets (and are available on Amazon or a local independent bookseller).
Thanks for all the surprises, Greg.
Now, we get to pay it forward.
Each time someone receives a parcel, they have to send a new parcel about their corner of the globe to three new recipients. (I did the math and if everyone from Pink and Green Mama on, sent out three packages, there should be 177,147 packages that have been enjoyed by children.)
If you would like to receive a parcel from Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada (my kidlets have some fun ideas for our package), AND you are willing to send on three parcels, here's what to do.
Leave a comment on this post that you would like to Pay it Forward. Please leave contact info in hopes that you will be randomly selected to get a parcel.
You can be from anywhere that I can mail a parcel to.
Since it is summer in half of the globe, and people are coming and going, I will leave this open until
I will randomly choose three recipients to get a package from Vancouver Island.
After you receive your package, you will need to Pay it Forward in the same manner on your blog.
