Orlando Adventures For Flat Stanley

My nephew’s class is reading about Flat Stanley so his assignment was to mail Stanley to a cousin for some adventures. Flat Stanley came to the RIGHT place! Just check out all the fun he’s had exploring Orlando, Florida!

Flat Stanley visited the The Central Florida Zoo and rode a train, fed exotic animals, nearly escaped a snake attack and found another flat friend!

Stanley spent a LOT of time at the RDV Ice Den! He enjoyed watching my son at various hockey clinics, games and training sessions.

We sent Flat Stanley back to Russom Elementary School (with tons of brochures and Disney goodies). He is excited to return and share his adventures with everyone.

4 Thoughts to “Orlando Adventures For Flat Stanley”

  1. Oh my goodness – Stanley must be exhausted! What a great adventure for him and for Stanley’s friends to learn about other places.

    Flat Stanley was one of my favorite books as a kid!

  2. My son really enjoyed Stanley so we are going to our local library to check out Flat Stanley books. So many people yelled “hi Flat Stanley” and asked if they could take a photo with him (it was awesome)!

    I know I am exhausted (but then reality hit, this is my life…no wonder I’m always tired)! 😉

    Greg has the BEST cousin and aunt in the world!!!! Thanks so much for doing this…I can’t wait to hear what his class thinks.

  4. It was so much fun (and yes, I agree Mindy). 😉 This summer, you need to send Greg down so HE can fill his EPCOT passport with stamps!
