"I’m always baffled by what to give people that won’t end up in the trash. I reworked the ICWT word search postcard with info for this island (and a place to complete troop specific info) and thought it may be something you might be able to use. I printed it on card stock so it will stand out from all the other handouts that parents take away from these events."
