I work in a bilingual creche with children aged 0 to 3 years old, in Brittany, France. Just like all the other children in the world we are currently on lockdown.

Our project this year is the world. Because of the lockdown the only thing (apart from play) our little ones can do is go for a walk to our post box every day which is at the bottom of the car parksmile

I wondered if kind mumsnetters and their children would send us postcards from the towns, cities and countries where they live. We have a world map on the wall and we've received some cards from friends abroad already.

The children love to receive the cards, look at the picture and talk about who sent them.

We would be really grateful, you can write in French or English 🤣

Our address is

Le P'tit Club, 3 Rue de la Ferme de Talhouët, 56250 Saint-Nolff, France

Thanks so much

Is there anyone, anywhere in the world who would like to send the children in the creche a postcard? Maybe from your own children

I was going to do it but I'm in France, no so exciting for the little ones grin

@LongPauseNoAnswer please send a card. What is exciting for the kids is putting on their coats, walking down to the post box and finding a card. France is a big country and we will have a week of celebrating all things French, plus a week of Englishness.

We've already done the Isles of Tonga, Morocco and next week is Canada

I will too. What a lovely idea. But don't expect it too soon as our postal system is just diabolical at the moment.

LadyEloise Wed 04-Nov-20 17:15:58

Will do. I'm in Ireland

Yes, will try to find you a card from afar from my box, even though I'm now in the UK. Lots of love to Brittany, almost the only bit of France I know.

Ooh, just thought - you might also like this. I'm absolutely suckered in by it! Am bad at editing video but have one that's waiting, a view from a beach hut.

Absolutely! I'll do it on Friday

SeasonFinale Wed 04-Nov-20 19:17:39

Placemarking so that I can find the address once I buy a card.

whoareyouIwonder Wed 04-Nov-20 19:19:50

RandomMess Wed 04-Nov-20 19:35:25
