Hi, That sounds like a great idea. In the mean time, we use a great website called postcrossing that is all about postcards. I shared the idea on here so you should be able to search it. Since we started in March/April we have recieved and sent over 35 postcards all over the world!

Postcard Crossing Postcard Exchange

Here is an idea of what we have done with our postcards (since we have too many for our pin board) We have also made the folder pretty by using photocopies of all the stamps and gluing them to the front, and then putting glue over the top.

Hand-painted Rocks

There is also a great community of people that enjoy hiding and finding painted rocks. We painted some rocks, sealed them with a spray sealant and then hid them for local children to find!

6 Whiteboard Games for the Elderly

This is what we do with one of our whiteboards using the monthly facts and games sheets from this website. We have many whiteboards littered throughout our centre and love using them so thanks for the ideas!

Birthday / Family Discs

We have done something similar. We stuck each cake to the wall then used Velcro tabs to stick the names to each cake so that they can be removed if necessary. Sorry for the horrible photo.

Active Monopoly

I've just realised that I made a mistake with the property cards. they still have our local street names instead of the monopoly street names. Sorry for that everyone, If would advise just putting a sticker over each name and writing in the correct name.
