Allison McDonald is a former preschool teacher who now spends her days learning with her 3-year-old son and baby daughter. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband and two children.

Neither my husband or I grew up in Seattle and we travel to Canada and Texas every year visit family and friends. Now that we have kids and our friends do too we want to build their connections and this home made gift is a great way to do that. This exact kit will be wrapped up and given to friends this holiday and other than a few little trinkets it's the gift I am most excited to give.


Gather your materials, you will need a pencil case , some cardstock, a marker, 13 fun note cards with 12 matching envelopes, stamps and stickers.

Start by writing out on one of the note cards how to use the kit.

Make a label for the case.

Pre address a few of the envelopes so they know to write you!

Pop it all in! Wrap it up and keep in touch.
