Cultural Exchanges

Logan and I came across this site, "gimmie your stuff". You swap little packages with people around the world and a get a peek into their culture. I think this is a great idea and a fun little thing to do with Logan. At the end of our walks we always stop at the mail box and get the mail and I show him what we got -- "a bill for daddy, ohhh a flyer for pizza, another bill for daddy..." Perhaps this will make the stops at the mail box a bit more exciting. I use to have a bunch of pen pals when I was a kid and loved trading little packages of surprises. I'm hoping that I can find some other mom's to trade things with.

As per the site, here is our list:

Scrapbook Stickers and other items
Canadian Magazines
Canadian Food and Candy!
Mixed CDs
Kids Books in English
Canadian Souvenirs
Little Toys
Clothing -something for you or your child
and best of all: SURPRISES!

Let me know if you want to swap. Also if you have a child please let me know their age.

Hopefully we can do a swap soon. I'll post pictures of what we get here and do a video of Logan learning about the country we swapped with and looking at the stuff we get. Should be fun! Stay Posted!
