I'm not quite sure how the end of the school year snuck up on me so quickly, but here it is. For the past 9 months my kids have been developing friendships with their classmates - relationships that I would hate to see end just because summer has arrived. So I set out to create a fun way for the kids to keep in touch. I would love to say that my idea is as slick as any of the social networking sites like Twitter or Facebook, but the truth is that I decided to go old school by simply handing out our phone number and asking the kids to give us a call this summer.
Here is the final result of my efforts - I took miniature beach balls that I had purchased a hundred years ago from Oriental Trading and personalized each one with sticky foam letters...
I then attached what I'm referring to as a "playdate business card" to the beach balls. The Internet is such a wonderful thing - who knew there were beach ball-themed business cards out there? You can pick this style up at Zazzle.com.
Hope you have a ball this summer!
