Send a Letter to Melvin
Melvin Moon will be full in a couple of days and of course he is getting ready for Halloween too!
As you all know if you've read Melvin's Balloons, Melvin likes to send letters. What you might not know is that he also likes to receive letters!
When Heather takes Melvin's Balloons to school groups, this is one of the activities she brings with her.
Activity # 2: Send a Letter to Melvin Moon
1.Color a balloon shape on a piece of white paper, or trace a balloon shape on a piece of construction paper and cut it out.
2.Write a letter to Melvin telling him why you picked the color you did.
3.Cut out your letter and glue it on your balloon.
4.Glue a piece of yarn, string or ribbon to your balloon and place it on display! You might want to put your balloon in your window so Melvin can see it easily!
You can also send letters to Melvin through Heather. Add your letter as a comment to this blog or send Heather an email.
