I got a neat book in the mail today that might help fulfill one of the
bear requirements in the Information Please chapter. It asks that you
write to a company about a product.
The book I got is Free Stuff for Kids, Meadowbrook Press, Minnetonka, MN
All the mentioned items you can send away for are free or less than a
buck. My ideas was to let the kids pick one of the hopefully free or 50
cents or less items, address the envelope, write the letter, stamp and
mail it - later they will get something neat in the mail that they wanted.
I think this activity meets the intent of the project and would be fun.
The book cost me $5. plus S&H as I recall. There are Internet freebies
and pen-pals also.
