In April of 2020, Paprika Blush and I proposed a monthly packet of activities and coloring pages for CodeVA children’s programming families. With CodeVA’s support, we coordinated the writing, illustration, editing, and distribution of Snail Mail for two years. Beginning in August of 2021, I took over editing as Snail Mail grew to several thousand booklets, with Paprika focusing on illustration.
Below are Snail Mail PDFs that were made with my guidance: I requested that specific activities were written by Eureka Workshop instructors, and I used Adobe Illustrator and InDesign to create staple bound booklets. Starting in December of 2021, I redesigned the template to allow for bilingual formatting. Each Snail Mail copy going forwards had both English and Spanish activities on each page.
