Sent Treasures...

25 Nov 2015

A little while ago, my lovely friend Sara asked if I would like to take part in a nature exchange. She was keen to show her daughter some treasures from different regions in the world, as part of her ''nature around the world'' series for her preschool homeschooling project. 

In exchange for the ocean plastics and beach finds we sent to them in Pennsylvania, USA, we received a parcel of beautiful shells and finds from their garden. I love the sand dollar (have always wanted one of those) and look at the size of those clam shells! They also sent a little bag containing some amazingly soft, white sand.

It was wonderful for the kids to experience actually seeing and touching these different treasures, and they so enjoyed the process of choosing and putting the parcel together too. Thank you, Sara, we love it!

Anyone else fancy a little exchange of treasures? I do love an excuse to send snail mail! x
