Playful Learning: Field Guide Postcards

Enjoy a Lesson -> Gift a Lesson

Giving gifts to the children in our lives, offers us the opportunity to encourage new interests and areas of exploration. In an effort to create a gift that does just that, we’ve developed our very first (shippable) Playful Learning product—Field Guide Postcard Sets!

The Playful Learning Field Guide Postcard Set places four inspiring lessons into your children’s hands. Each postcard includes a web link that provides fun activities and printables related to each topic—offering hours of playful learning!

These postcards make perfect gifts for your children to share with their friends and family. Each postcard is mailable, so your child can write a note, pop it in the mail, and play it forward!

The possibilities are endless…



Children have a natural attraction and fascination with rocks and minerals. Inspire your budding young geologist with a beautiful postcard and fun printable activities such as: three-part cards, identification chart, and coloring sheet, where they will learn to identify their favorite rocks and minerals.

Insects provide us with the opportunity to learn about a variety of living creatures in the natural world. Children will learn firsthand about the parts of an insect—what they all have in common and what unique features separates them. With their newfound knowledge they will have the opportunity to invent their own insect! For gift suggestions to complement our Insect Guideclick here.

With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
