Cooped up with the kids on yet another snow day? Here’s a fun way to think ahead to spring and learn a little something, too. Remember Flat Stanley? The world-traveling paper cut-out has gone digital, and through the Flat Stanley mobile app kids can now explore organic farming thanks to a partnership with Cascadian Farm.
While on the virtual farm tour, kids can explore where their food comes from, what organic means and why organic farming is important to protect the ecosystem. I didn’t even realize Flat Stanley has a sister now, Flat Stella — the foodie tot dressed her Flat Stella in a t-shirt and sporty skirt and they were off to the farm together.
Ready to play? Download the free app, create your Flat Stanley or Flat Stella character and look for the Cascadian Farm logo in the far northwest corner of the US. (Cascadian Farm was founded in Washington’s Skagit Valley.)
About Cascadian Farm: Since 1972, Cascadian Farm® has grown from its original farm in the Skagit Valley to be recognized as a leading participant and champion in the organic movement.

Here at the Foodie Tots house, we are big fans of their Cinnamon Crunch cereal. I appreciate that their organic cereals don’t have crazy amounts of sugar, contain no artificial colors or preservatives and are GMO-free.
