My children LOVE their grandparents. After all, they have the best grandparents in the world! They love to do sweet things to let the children know they love them and are thinking of them. My mom was asking about ideas of things that can be easily stuck in a small letter sized envelope to send frequent "smiles" to the children without breaking the piggy bank in shipping.  So I started brainstorming... actually, I asked some friends on Facebook for help! Boy, oh, boy! What a great list they helped to compile!

Here's the list:

  1. bracelets
  2. balloons
  3. stickers
  4.  lightweight paperback books
