Sign-ups for this exchange are now CLOSED!!
Hey friends! We are so excited to have you join us for our 1st Christmas Craft Exchange! This exchange will work a bit differently than those in the past, we’ve added a super fun twist. This time around you will collect nature items and get crafty for Christmas with your finds to send to your pal. It could be an ornament, a wreath, the possibilities are endless. You can visit our Pinterest Boards for some fun ideas.
As usual, we pair you up with a family in a different area and with similar aged children if we can. Remember this does take a bit of time on our part, so once we close sign ups it will take up to 2 weeks to have your pal info emailed out to you. During that time collect and get your Christmas crafty on! 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. A chance to experience crafting and receiving a gift made with love is so special, especially around this time of year. We ask that you have your boxes prepared and mailed by Friday, December 11 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. 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.
We ask all participants to donate $5 for each exchange. The funds we raise for the Christmas Craft exchange will be donated to Heidi Steffen and her family. We are asking that you donate directly to our PayPal account for this exchange. We are hoping this will eliminate the payment issues many of you had in the past. After we receive your donation we will send you a link with the signup form. Please allow 24 hours to receive the message containing the link.
Heidi and her children have been a part of the Nature Pal Community since our second exchange. Heidi was recently diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. We are excited to rally together to give them a financial blessing.
