What is Flat Stanley?
Flat Stanley is a pen pal inspired activity. You can read all about how Flat Stanley became “Flat” by reading the Flat Stanley Book. You could also grab the Flat Stanley boxed set instead.
where you will print out a Flat Stanley or Flat Stella using a template found online. Your child will then color it. Once their Flat Stanley or Flat Stella is complete then your child will take this Flat Stanley around with him or her, snap a few pictures to send of their adventure and fill out the printable activity pack. You will both mail your Flat Stanley or Flat Stella to another child in another state. This is a good time to teach your child how to mail an envelope and which details need to be placed in each area of the envelope. The child who received Flat Stanley will take pictures and write all about their adventures with Flat Stanley. It is an adorable little way to connect children in different states with each other.
How amazing does your child feel when they receive a letter addressed to them in the mail? I bet they feel so special.
The Flat Stanley project encourages:
- forms new friendships
- encourages children to learn more about their state
- teaches children storytelling skills.
