While traveling in Europe with my church choir (from Holy Angels Catholic Church in Chagrin Falls, Ohio) last October, I took Flat Stanley with me to London and Paris.
In the picture we are at the Musse du Louvre. My friend Aimee Knoyer, a second grade teacher at St. Thomas Aquinas School in Cleveland was doing a classroom project based on the children’s story by Jeff Brown.
Stanley is accidently flattened by a bulletin board and finds it easy to be mailed in an envelope to visit his friends.
Each student made their own Flat Stanley. The Stanleys were sent out to travel with friends to see as many places as they could in the world. Aimee plotted Flat Stanley’s travels on a map sharing photos and postcards with her students from his travels.
Last night on the news, I saw a report about Flat Daddy. Flat Daddies and Flat Mommies are life-size printed posters of parents who are actively serving overseas in the military.
These life size cut outs help families with younger children stay connected to their soldiers as they are carted everywhere from soccer games to birthday parties. Order a Flat Daddy or Flat Mommy from an Ohio company, SFC Graphics through their Web site, www.flatdaddies.com .
