Bigs can write a simple paragraph starting a story and send it to the Little to continue the story with another paragraph and send it back to the Big to keep going

Mail your Little a homemade crossword puzzle with clues and answers based on outings you’ve had as a match and provide the parent with the answers in case help is needed.
