Yesterday several neighborhood children became interested in my artist trading card collection. They looked through my binder at hundreds of cards from around the world and asked a ton of questions. One second grade girl finally got up the nerve to ask if I had any cards so she could make one. That opened the rest of them too. I gave away 15-20 card blanks and plastic sleeves to 3 of the kids and told them to go make art.
I'm excited to see if they will and what they will do with it. It would be cool to have a junior ATC club forming in the neighborhood.
I need to break my ATC collection into 2 binders though. The last few pages are filled with nude cards and I had to keep the kids out of that section while browsing. None are sexual but I'm not letting anywhere near them. Having a kid friendly book is a good idea.
My own ATCs need to get done too. My goal for today is 4 cards with sheep on them for an organized swap. My over-goal is to make 3 more cards to trade with the kids.
