Where’s Buddy?

Inspired by the popular “Flat Stanley” project, our very own Buddy the Bluebird mascot is eager to travel and explore the world with our families.

How It Works:

  1. Get Your Buddy: Pick up a copy of Buddy at your school or print one HERE to take along on your travels and adventures. Buddy can accompany you on vacations, day trips, or even local outings.
  2. Capture the Moments: As you explore new places, please take pictures of Buddy enjoying the sights. We encourage you to be creative and have fun with this!
  3. Share the Adventure: Send us your photos of Buddy’s travels! Click HERE or use the submission form link below. If you share pictures of your adventures with Buddy on your social media, use #WheresBuddy in your post!
  4. Track Buddy’s Journey: Keep up with Buddy’s travels on this page and our school’s Facebook and Instagram pages! Ensure you like and follow your school’s pages so you don’t miss out on the fun.
  5. Win a Prize: We will randomly select weekly photo submissions to win a variety of prizes, including a one-year subscription to Highlights magazine, gift cards, and more!

Why Participate?

  • Educational Value: This activity promotes learning about different places and cultures, enhancing our children’s understanding of the world.
  • Family Fun: It’s a great way for families to bond and create lasting memories together.
  • School Spirit: Sharing Buddy’s adventures helps build a sense of community and excitement among students and families at The Nest Schools.

We will be running this activity from now until the end of August. We hope that Buddy will travel far and wide, creating a global adventure that all our students can enjoy and learn from. We can’t wait to see where Buddy will go next!
