**Sign ups for the Raising Little Shoots Nature Pen Friend are now closed, thank you**
To take part, please email me at: lynnseddonhs at gmail dot com by the 23rd April with the following information:
- Your full name, and names and age(s) of your child(ren)
- Your email
- Your postal address
- If you are happy to post internationally
- If you would be able to put together and post a ‘swap angel’ box, should someone else drop out at the last minute.
- If you are a blogger, the name of your blog
PLEASE TITLE YOUR EMAIL ‘NATURE PEN FRIENDS’
Sign ups will close on the evening of April 23rd (please note I am in England, so this could be earlier than you expect!)
The following week, I will contact you with the details of your nature pen friend.
IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO PREVENT YOU FROM TAKING PART AFTER SIGNING UP (yes, life happens!) PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP, SO I CAN MAKE ALTERNATIVE ARRANGEMENTS. Please take a moment to consider how your child would feel if they did not receive a parcel.
Once you have the details of your nature pen friend, please begin collecting nature treasures from your special nature spot. Label them if possible, and pack them safe and well in sturdy packaging.
You will need to send a minimum of six items.
PLEASE TAKE TIME TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE ABLE TO POST TO YOUR NATURE PEN FRIEND. MOST COUNTRIES HAVE VERY STRICT GUIDELINES ON WHAT CAN GO IN AND OUT VIA THE POSTAL SERVICE.
**THIS IS YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY**
Once your items are safely packaged, post them to your Nature Pen Friend.
**THE LAST DATE FOR POSTING IS 21st MAY**
Once your parcel arrives, please contact the family that sent to you, to let them know. (This may be a different family than the one you posted to.)
If you have a blog, or are active on social media, please blog about your nature pen friends package, and share on the Exploring Nature With Children FaceBook page.
