Melissa and Lucy, this post is for you! Thank you for sharing your Flat Stanley project with us. We’ve been having fun with him!
Before we were able to color him, Flat Stanley arrived in England at Missenden Abbey in Great Missenden. Brad took him along to some of his meetings.
He rode on a train from London to Whitstable.
Then Charlie and Flora colored him and we gave him some shape. Here he is posing with the twins in the front garden of our house in Whitstable.
He joined the twins at the beach. Those big wooden fences are called groynes, and they help keep big waves from washing too much water ashore and keep the rocks from washing away. Whistable is famous for seafood and especially oysters.
The pub in the background here is called The Old Neptune
Stinky oyster shells!
Uh oh — Stanley got caught in a fishing net!
A stop at Wee Willy Winkle’s Cafe (a winkle is a snail-like creature that people like to eat in Whitstable)
Later, Stanley joined the twins at Elliott’s cafe for a cheese toasty.
Stanley joined in the fun at a re-enactment of the landing preceding the 1011 sacking of Canterbury by the Vikings and the abduction of St. Alphege.
I’m sure we’ll have lots more fun with Stanley…
