The information is on the National Parent-Teacher Association Facebook page, but the gist is simple: Send handmade snowflakes to: Connecticut PTA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT06514
Now obviously not every parent has talked to their children about the recent tragedy, nor should you. I think you could still get your younger kids involved by telling them that you're making snowflakes to help some kids in need to decorate their classrooms. No need for a lot of specifics.
"One thing I've learned, is that children love helping other children, whatever the reason. Another thing I've learned-paper snowflakes bring peace. To those of us making them, and to those of us who get to come home to them. Especially in Connecticut in a few weeks." -Liz
Please send snowflakes to the Connecticut PTA for arrival before 1/12/13.
