Operation Write Home's Bunny Hop Blog Hop

Welcome to the Operation Write Home's Bunny Hop Blog Hop! I am so honored to be part of this organization's wonderful hop! There are 135 stops in hop--if you came here from Kelly's You and your Big Dreams, you are in the right place. If you would like to start from the beginning, go here.

Operation Write Home is an amazing organization and helps connect soldiers with home in many ways. One of my favorite ways to connect is by using the printables for young people to color and to write letters and notes to the soldiers abroad. Here you can download and print off writing color pages that children [or adults] can write letters of appreciation to their soldier heroes. I use these mainly with the cubscouts in our Pack. The boys love coloring the images and writing letters to their heroes.

Below I have made 2 spring themed cards! I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them!
