Flat Stanley

I bought the kids the book "Flat Stanley" by Jeff Brown and they loved it instantly! It is about a normal boy named Stanley Lambchop who gets flattened ( but unharmed) after his bulletin board fell on top of him.
He gets to enter rooms by going under the doors, he even gets mailed to California for vacation. He is a kite for his brother, Arthur and nabs some art thieves at the Museum of Art!

Stanley's adventures left smiles on all 4 kids faces. Their imaginations were definitely hard at work!

I decided to read up on the "Flat Stanley Project" online. Instead of mailing a Flat Stanley to a pen pal, the kids wanted to make a Flat Rylee, Beckett, Kenzie and Chloe to mail out!

Flat Mackenzie and Flat Chloe will be going to see Aunt Cassie and Emma in New Jersey for a week. While there, Cassie will take them everywhere and send them back with pictures and a little letter about their adventures!

Flat Rylee and Flat Beckett are going to see Uncle Brent for a week because apparently they think a place that is 1.5 hours away is pretty adventurous! More than that, I think they know that Brent and his friends are pretty entertaining and that Flat Rylee and Flat Beckett will be anything but bored.

The kids had so much fun coloring and choosing what they wanted their flat selves to look like.

Stay tuned ....
