I am 36 years old and I still get excited when I get a piece of mail. (happy mail, no bills please) It's the excitement and pure joy to know that someone is thinking about you. One of my favorite memories as a child was at Christmas time. My grandparents from Nebraska would send one giant package for the entire family. As a child it looked huge. It was the best day that time of year when that package arrived. I remember we always had to wait to see if my brother and my gift were wrapped. Sometimes grandma would just put everything in the big box and not wrap it.
Next, the exciting part when all the gift were brought out. So much fun!! I love reliving such happy memories. Can you see me smiling?
I see that same joy when Grace gets a letter, card or anything in the mail. She has two magazines that we always hear a Whoop or Awesome when they arrive.
The first is Highlights for kids. What a awesome magazine! This is certainly not one of the cheaper subscriptions, but to me it is totally worth it. Just today Grace and I did a page in it and it really got her mind thinking about money. It was a fun, tough problem for her that I even enjoyed doing. Her favorite is the word search.
There is also a Highlights website packed full of activities. If the ordering the book isn't an option or if you child wants more activities, try the website. Grace hasn't been on there too much. Let me know what you think if you and your child go exploring.
Her second monthly arrival in the mail box is the LEGO Club Magazine. She has gotten this for several months and really enjoys it. Her favorite part of the LEGO Magazine is when they have How To build different projects. This last issue was packed full of Star Wars and comics. The best part is it is free!
