The kids have been enjoying a very special visit from one of our good friends from Massachusetts – Flat Stanley style! Their good friend Aidan read Flat Stanley (affiliate link) with his second grade class, and made a Flat Aidan who came to visit us!
The kids really miss Aidan and their other friends, and they were excited to have visit of sorts! He joined Johnny and Emma in their favorite activities – reading for Emma and playing with LEGO bricks for Johnny.
Emma made a nice bed for flat Aidan to sleep in using the patchwork doll quilt that we made last year:
We even took Aidan along on our after dinner walks!
We have to send Flat Aidan home now, but the kids sure enjoyed his visit! Hopefully the real Aidan can visit us next time – or we will be able to take the kids back to Massachusetts for a visit!

How was your afterschooling week? Please share you elementary school aged activities in the linky below (by doing so you are giving the linky hosts permission to feature your post and to pin it to our After School Activities board on Pinterest). I really enjoyed this building with paper engineering challenge that was linked up by Deceptively Educational last week!
