Mail for kids? Yes! http://www.mail4kids.ca/
. A fantastic concept that brings together fun and education in a very original way.
Consider this, before e-mail, putting aside the junk mail and the bills, wasn't it wonderful to get something in the mail? Children that go to the mail box with you are always asking if there is something for me? Now there can be.
For a yearly subscription, kids will receive monthly beautiful cards of pre-determined categories that include animals, food, architecture, sports, travel and many more. On one side kids will see an image, and on the other side, the interesting and of course educational facts of the item. The card also arrives with an activity sheet that carries on the theme of the card. Talk about creating a desire and enthusiasm to learn!
Additionally, on their birthday and certain holidays, they will also receive special mail.
mail4kids is a great way to encourage perfecting and using those very important reading skills, not to mention a clever way of giving the gift that gives all year long!
Sherri-lee Pressman the mom who created this magnificent idea tell us that "mail4kids prides itself on being fun, interesting and educational... which seems to be a difficult thing these days...that goes hand in hand with being engaging". Another thing that has impressed us further of Sherri-Lee is her wish to be able to create a charity arm to her work that would aim at encouraging literacy in kids. Passionate about it, she adds :"... I think kids growing up without knowing how to read is a crime and many lives would be changed if (they) learned about the joy of reading."
