How does it feel to receive a letter in the mail? How does it feel to send a letter to someone you care about? What do you like about receiving a handwritten letter or postcard? Take a moment this summer to write a postcard to a friend or family member.

Print out the following materials, and gather art supplies, writing materials, and postcard stamps from your home.

You can also contact Youth Services for a program bag with all of the materials that you will need to complete this activity. Call us at 715-839-5007 or send an email to Youth Services.
