My friend, Jennifer, over at Toadhaven got us interested in 'flat' activities. Flat Stanely is an adorable children's book that then lends itself to very fun activities involving 'flats'. You can make a 'flat anything' - yourself or characters from other books - we've even seen flat peaches (think James and the Giant Peach).
A teacher from an Arizona middle school contacted Toadhaven because of her blog posts about flat activities they have done. The Arizona teacher was looking for someone to take the flat crickets her class had made into Times Square, NYC, after reading A Cricket in Times Square. Jennifer knew just who would be interested!
Flat Gavin & Flat Mikey (with Jack & Annie from Magic Treehouse) got to do alot of fun things in Arizona.
