My 3 year old recently participated in a Flat Simon exchange (originally Flat Stanley, but this particular one was renamed). =) He had loads of fun taking him to places, and it gave us the opportunity to talk about where we live and where we are on a map. Here are a few places we took him to, based on where we (and our extended family) live.
My son was sad to give up Flat Simon, so I told him we could make a special card/holder for Flat Simon to travel in, as he goes to his next destination. And then we would make our own “Flat Simon” to keep, but make him Asian looking, just like my son, so he could have his own flat version of himself. He was ecstatic at that idea. So that’s what we’re supposed to do tomorrow. =)
Here’s the card we made:
The little holder on the inside – holds Flat Simon and a little note for the next recipients:
(Sidenote: I’m not loving the smeared heart – looks a bit morbid. But my son really wanted it that way. Oh well…)
