Hey friends! We are so excited to have you join us for our 3rd annual Christmas Craft Exchange! This particular one works a bit differently from our normal seasonal exchanges. This time around you will collect (or use what you’ve collected through the year) nature items and get your Christmas craft on! You could include a handmade ornament, a wreath, candle, really the possibilities are endless. Visit our Pinterest Boards or our IG hashtags #naturepalexchangecrafts#npechristmas for some inspiration from last years Christmas exchange.
As usual, we pair you up with a family in a different area and with similar aged children if we can. Please remember, this does take a bit of time on our part. Once we close sign ups, it will take up to 2 weeks to have your pal info emailed out to you. (Don’t forget to check your email for your pal info and look in that spam box!) While you’re waiting for your pal’s info, use that time to collect nature finds and have fun crafting! This is an awesome opportunity for you to lead your children in activity that allows them to bless another family with their talents and abilities. Please have your boxes prepared and mailed by December 13th to make it to your pal by Christmas. For some, this time of year can be hectic, so if you think this deadline might be a problem, we ask that you sit this round out. We promise there will be future rounds just like this one.
We are only open to families (U.S. & Canadian residents only) with children living at home. Remember this is an educational program geared towards families exploring and “meeting” new friends who live in another part of the country! As fun as it may seem for a class/teacher/nature group to sign up we ask that you do not at this time. Our next group exchange will be in the spring.
If you choose to participate you are only required to send 1 box this round. For important information on mailing guidelines please visit our About Page.
This round we will be donating a portion of the funds to International Justice Mission Their incredible vision is to Rescue thousands. Protect millions. Prove that justice for the poor is possible. We encourage you to visit their site and learn more about the incredible work they are doing.
