It is a well known fact that kids love to send and receive mail. Heck, even I get excited when I get something good in the mail.
This morning Abby asked to “do a project” with me and I thought writing some letters to her favorite Disney characters would be something she would enjoy and would also be a fun activity that we could do together without too much effort on a Saturday morning. She had way too much energy while I was still trying to wake up and get coffee into my system. A few months ago I saw several pins on Pinterest that gave an address where kids can write to their favorite Disney characters and receive back an autographed 8×10 photo from that character.
We got out some blank cards and stickers. She dictated the messages and I wrote the letters. Abby “signed” her name and added stickers to the outsides of the cards. I addressed the envelopes. We wrote to Minnie Mouse, Aurora, Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Rapunzel, and Belle and The Beast.
I don’t know if we will really receive photos back, but Abby had great fun. I figured that If it doesn’t work, all we are out is the cost of a stamp; if it does work, she will have some autographs to frame and hang in her room. I will let you all know if we do receive a response in the mail.
If you would like to try, the address I found on Pinterest is:
ATTN: [insert character name here]
PO BOX 10040
LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL 32830-0040
If you have sent letters to this address, comment and let me know. I would love to hear how it turned out for you!
