Youth activities for your stamp show

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

KIDPEX was not the only Wisconsin stamp show to promote collecting among youth, this past October. DANEPEX '94, a one-day event held on October 1, also got "into the swim of things" and used the National Stamp Collecting Month theme for their youth area.

Karen Weigt orchestrates DANEPEX’s very active youth area annually. Karen sent me a copy of the 1994 activities. They could be adapted for your youth club or for a youth area at your stamp show.

The hook

All children entering the youth area were invited to fish once for stamps in a large fishbowl. To fish again, they had to complete one of three sets of four activities outlined on a checklist. After each set of four was completed, youths had an opportunity to "Go Fish" again. To avoid congestion at any one place at the activity table, the sets could be completed in any order.

The fishbowl

Many of you will recall your child-hood days and the Go Fish games that were a part of school carnivals and fairs. The DANEPEX fishbowl contained a variety of packets of stamps: some off paper in glassine envelops and some on paper in coin envelops. Some packets contained United States stamps, some contained worldwide stamps. Each envelope was fastened with a metallic paper fastener (for magnetic attraction). The fishing pole was a dowel with a string and magnet attached to the end.

The activities

In the first set of activities, youngsters were asked to:

(1) Fill out an entry for the door prize,

(2) Complete a scavenger hunt by picking stamps from a mixture of off-paper stamps and hinging and mounting them into the appropriate spaces on the hunt sheet,

(3) Match the stamp collecting tools to the description, and

(4) Measure perforations, using an enlarged perforation gauge and replicas of stamps enlarged to scale.

Within the second set of activities, were instructions to:

(1) Find and look at three non-competitive exhibits, and then decide which you like best, second best, and third best;

(2) Using a "Postal Service Guide to U.S. Stamps," identify by catalog number, at least three of six stamps shown in the picture frame;

(3) Play one of the electronic matching games; and

(4) Find which look-alike stamp doesn't match the others. (This activity, officially titled "Looking Closely at Stamps: Stamp Look-Alikes," consists of five look-alike stamps mounted in a single row. For example, with the F-Rate Flower issue, there were four KCS-produced booklet stamps and one BEP-produced stamp. Youths were asked to find the stamp that did not match the others. Another example: four 29 ’ Wood Duck stamps with the denomination in black and one with the 29 ’ red denomination)

In the final set of activities, youths could:

(1) Play Wheel of Fortunate Philately - played similar to the real TV game version using philatelic terms,

(2) Choose 25 United States on-paper stamps for their collection, (3) choose 25 worldwide stamps, and

(4) Design a poster for KIDPEX. Youths completing all 12 activities had a chance to "Go Fish" for a total of five times. They also received a packet of 100 stamps and a prize from the grab-box.

Additional elective activities were to try some of the other electronic matching games, look at the exhibits, try measuring perforations using real stamps, pick up stamp literature, and play stamp bingo.

You can be sure that when Madison hosts WISCOPEX '95, the annual convention and exhibition of the Wisconsin Federation of Stamp Clubs, there will be an abundance of well-planned, hands-on youth activities. Plan now to stop by and see what exciting things can be planned for working with children: •

Having stamp fun with new issues

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

There is great anticipation in the philatelic world each November when the U.S. Postal Service unveils its commemorative stamp program. I always look forward to the announcement of the future stamp releases as it helps me in planning what new stamps I will be able to tie in with activities as well as possible themes for my KIDPEX stamp show.

1995 will be a banner year for stamp issues. Not only are there many attractive and interesting commemorative issues, but with the rate change, there also will be many new definitives. Among the regularly issued stamps are the non-denominated G stamps.

The "alphabet" stamps, as some like to call them, are always of interest to kids. An entire lesson can be made by introducing them to all of the other non-denominated stamps. Research can be done to determine what rate each letter stands for, when the rate went into effect, what formats were avail-able, etc.

You may want to have your youth group do some thinking about the next non-denominated stamp. Assuming that the Postal Service continues to use letters of the alphabet, have the children brainstorm different ideas for an H stamp. It might be interesting to record the ideas and then seal them in an envelope until the next rate increase is announced. (Even though your youth membership comes and goes, future young philatelists will probably be interested and possibly surprised by what predictions have been made.) Some would-be artists might want to try their hand at designing the H stamp.

A Love stamp will be issued in February, just in time for Valentine's Day. Each child can prepare a homemade valentine for another member of the group. Address the envelopes, add the new Love stamp, and send the entire batch of envelopes to Loveland, CO, where the postmaster will not only give each stamp a special cancellation, but will usually add a hand-stamped cachet. Kids love to receive mail!

For added stamp fun, the valentines could be made from used or damaged stamps. One idea would be to take a stamp and use it as a basis for a pun - much like commercial valentines. For example, a stamp with a lion might be captioned "I'm not 'lion,' be my valentine."

A Florida Statehood stamp will be issued in March. The Ventura Stamp Club (Florida) is sponsoring a contest for youth. Youth between the ages of kindergarten to fifth grade are invited to submit a brief essay about a subject relevant to Florida, using a United States stamp as an illustration. Prizes will be awarded. If you want more details about this contest, write to me at P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187. •

March issue

Having stamp fan with new issues - Part II

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

The United States will issue a stamp honoring aviator Bessie Coleman in a continuation of the Black Heritage series. Although Black Heritage Month is usually celebrated in February with a new postal release, this year's rate change has pushed that date back to an as-yet undetermined March or April date. Although I have written about possible activities using the Black Heritage stamps before, I feel that the information is worth repeating.

The U.S. Postal Service prepared a 12-minute video for release in conjunction with Black History Month in February 1994. "African-American LEGENDS & LEADERS in American History" is a short and entertaining program that spotlights the accomplishments of Black Americans on United States postage stamps. The video is available from your local postmaster.

To complement the video, I am offering two additional activities. Black Heritage commemoratives have been issued since 1978. I have a matching activity that provides youth with an opportunity to discover the contributions made by 10 of these famous men and women.

The "Black American. United States Stamp Album" will also be sent to those making the request. The album, designed by John Rose, is intended to be reproduced. The 9-page album is not limited to the stamps produced for Black History Month in February, but also depicts other stamps that feature African-Americans. The album contains brief biographies.

To receive these materials, please send me $1 to defray the costs of photocopies, postage and handling. My address is shown at the end of this article.

More on "alphabet" stamps

In last month's column, I suggested an activity for youth with the "alphabet" stamps. Youth club leader Karen Weigt recently sent me two worksheets that she created for use with the alphabet stamp activity. These album-designed pages would make a very comprehensive lesson.

The pages tell what rate each letter stands for, when the rate went into effect, and what formats were avail-able. There is a space to mount an example of each stamp. For those look-alike stamps produced by different printers, an explanation of the differences and what to look for is included. These worksheets are very definitely a must-have far leaders working with youth and interested in producing a program on alphabet stamps. Youth will enjoy looking through a mixture of stamps to locate an example of each.

If you would like to have a copy of these pages, send s large SASE Io: MaryAnn Bowman, P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187. •

April issue

Having stamp fun with new issues - Part III

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

Among the new United States stamps being issued this month are the Kids Care About Environment se-tenant commemorative stamps. Designed by young artists for Earth Day in a nation-wide contest co-sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service and McDonald's, the stamp designs feature Sun Power, Earth in a Bathtub, Beach Cleanup and Planting a Tree.

Perhaps some of the youth you work with had submitted a stamp design for consideration. If so, you might want to talk about their design and the similarities and differences between the final selected designs.

These stamps could also be used as a springboard for a discussion on other stamp designs chosen through contests. For example, the design for the 1938 Presidential series, also known as the Prexies, was the result of an open competition.

In 1982, a national competition sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service resulted in more than a half million entries. Elementary and high school art students submitted thematic designs. Two designs were selected and produced on postage stamps in 1984.

The first of these designs was Scott #2104. Designed by 18-year-old Molly LaRue, the Family Unity stamp received much criticism at the time because the art and childlike lettering did not seem typical of artwork de-signed by a high school senior.

The second design depicted a Santa Claus and was used as the 1984 Christmas stamp. 7-year-old Danny LaBoccetta designed it. The stamp is Scott #2108. Club leaders that have access to the 11th edition of The Postal Service Guide to U.S. Stamps can find additional information about the con-test, as well as colored illustrations of the designs submitted by the semifinalists.

The first United States stamp de-signed by a youth was issued in 1956, also as a result of a national competition. The Children's Stamp was de-signed by a high school student, Ronald Dias. It is Scott #1085.

Since 1949, an annual Duck Stamp Design Competition has taken place. It is the only art competition sponsored by the federal government. Artists pay an entry fee to submit their waterfowl designs. The winning artist receives a pane of stamps bearing his or her design and the opportunity to sell prints of their prize-winning design.

It might be fun to try to put together a mini-display of stamps from around the world that have been designed by youth. There is a checklist of children's drawings on stamps avail-able from the American Topical Association.

Also being issued in April is a single commemorative stamp, a memorial issue for our former president, Richard Nixon. Next time, I will share some ideas that you can use with a study of presidents on United States stamps.

If have an idea that you would like to share, write to: MaryAnn Bowman, P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187.

May/June issue

Having stamp fun with new issues - Part IV

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

Use the Richard Nixon memorial stamp as an introduction to stamps that depict the presidents of the United States. Prior to your meeting, have a club member prepare a brief report on Nixon. Award a mint copy of the stamp.

Discuss stamp criteria (as established by the U.S. Postal Service and members of the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee) and how it is used in determining the eligibility of subjects for commemoration on stamps.

Many of the stamps depicting presidents are definitives. Give a mini-lesson reviewing the differences between commemorative and definitive stamps. Introduce the concept of memorial stamps such as the 2 ’ Black Harding of 1923.

Have the youth peruse a United States stamp catalog and record the catalog numbers of 10 different stamps featuring presidents. Show them how to use the subject index to help them find specific information more quickly.

Another mini-lesson can focus on the various sets that feature United States presidents. Among the most notable are the stamps from the 1938 Presidential series, The Prexies portray each of the 29 deceased presidents from George Washington through Calvin Coolidge on a separate postage stamp. The first president appears on the 1 ’ stamp, the second on the 2 ’ - value, etc., through the 22 ’ value depicting Grover Cleveland. Cleveland was also the 24th president but was not depicted again on a stamp. After the 22 ’ value, there is no connection between the terms of tenure in office and the denominations of the stamps.

With large groups, consider mounting each of the first 22 values on a small 2" x 3" card. Distribute one card to each member and have him or her arrange him or her in numerical order. Starting with the 1 ’ denomination, have each youth call out the name of their president and the term of office.

Gifted or advanced youth collectors may be challenged to identify presidents that had appeared on postage stamps prior to the 1938 Prexies. Compare those names with the presidents of the 1938 series. What 12 presidents were honored on a postage stamp design for the first time?

Compare the Prexies with those commemorated on the 1986 Presidential miniature sheets issued for Ameripex. How many additional presidents were honored? Did any of these presidents also have other stamps issued for them prior to the AMERIPEX issue?

Use the AMERIPEX sheets to con-duct a mini-lesson on miniature sheets. Make a display of presidents depicted on other United States sets such as the Liberty and Prominent Americans issues.

Using a mixture of stamps, conduct a scavenger hunt of presidents. You may want to provide a grid with spaces labeled for each deceased president.

Children will have fun creating fact cards about the presidents. Give each child one stamp depicting a United States president. Mount each stamp on the left portion of a lined 5" x 8" index card. The remaining portion of the card should be used to write up biographical information about the president pictured on the stamp. Oral presentations can follow.

Kids are intrigued by trivia. Leaders might choose a few of the more interesting facts as they relate to the better known presidents and prepare a matching game sheet - match the fact with the stamp featuring the president.

I'd love to hear your ideas! What "stamp fun" did you have with the Nixon stamp? Write to MaryAnn Bowman, P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187. •

July/August issue

Having stamp fun with new issues - Part V

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

There seems to be a proliferation of flag stamps this year, from the G stamps to the Flag Over Porch, to the POW and MIA issues. Flag stamps fascinate kids and you can use this to your advantage to teach flag history, flag etiquette, and philately.

The United States flag, as a patriotic symbol of our country, can be found on definitive and commemorative stamps, as well as postal stationery. Prior to the meeting, have your members find and bring examples of United States flags on stamps. Use their examples as a starting point for discussion. Leaders should plan to have actual stamps as examples or illustrations of the points they wish to pursue in the lesson.

Some of your worldwide collectors may be surprised to find that foreign countries have issued stamps portraying the United States flag. You can use these to spark another whole area of discussion as to why that particular country might have chosen to honor the United States.

Flag stamps can be used to review such philatelic terms as definitives, commemoratives, booklets, coils, sheet stamps, self-adhesives, rouletted, and postal stationery. Assemble examples of each of the current G stamps to show their many formats and varieties. For example, the new G coil stamps can 1e found with a black G, red G, and a blue G. Explain that these differences also identify the stamps as having been produced by the BEP, S`IS, and ABN, respectively.

To encourage keen observation, produce a set of flag stamp look-alike cards. Mount three stamps on a card. Two stamps should be identical; the third stamp should look like the other two but have some difference. The "odd" stamp might be a booklet stamp instead of from a sheet, a different denomination, coloration variety, etc. Children enjoy trying to spot the differences.

To reinforce the concept that most definitive flag stamps are very common, as well as to provide an interesting hands-on activity, have the kids create a flag puzzle. Gather quantities of common definitive flag stamps. Give each child a large 5" x 8" file card. Have each child find approximately 50 all-the-same flag stamps such as the 6’ Flag and White House (Scott #1338). Glue the stamps in collage (overlapping) fashion onto the file card. Within the collage, hide one 8’ Flag and White House stamp (#1338F). Kids will have fun exchanging the puzzles and trying to find the "odd" stamp. This activity works best and is more fun if the stamps are look-alikes. To keep with the flag theme, mini-lessons that introduce kids to flag cancels and patriotic covers depicting flags might be given by club members who specialize in those areas. Children might try their hand at creating an all-over patriotic flag cover. Use it, along with a flag stamp, to send a notice of their next club meeting. Kids love receiving mail in envelopes that they have designed.

Need more ideas about flags and stamps? Write to: MaryAnn Bowman, P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187. •

To mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations charter, the United States issued a commemorative stamp on June 26, 1995. The stamp features the peacekeeping organization's symbol and color (blue). Introduce this lesson to celebrate United Nations Day (October 24).

Show your youth members a copy of the new stamp as well as stamps from the United Nations. Invite a specialist of U.N. stamps to share his collection and a little history of the organization.

Provide appropriate background information. Every country has its own national postal agency (such as the U.S. Postal Service in the United States). The only postal administration in the world that is entitled to call itself international is the United Nations.

The UNPA has three locations. Mail may be posted from the U.N. Headquarters in New York City as well as from Geneva and Vienna. Use a map to point out where these cities are located and their country names.

Using the New York office as an example, point out that the UNPA has an agreement with the U.S. Postal Service, whereby the U.S. Postal Service carries mail franked with U.N. stamps and introduces any international mail into the mail stream. Similar agreements exist in Switzerland and Austria. It should also be noted that the denominations on the U.N. stamps correspond to the current rate and monetary units in use by the host country.

In 1994, the United Nations issued a special stamp album to celebrate the International Year of the Family. Produced with the cooperation of Steven Spielberg, the album titled "A Universal World of Stamps E.T. and the United Nations" might serve as an example of a project that you could introduce to your youth. The album itself carries a story line, full-color E.T. pictures, and a free-form space for stamps to be mounted.

Identify major goals and themes of the United Nations. Write one objective in easy-to-understand language on each page. Here are two examples from the album: "The United Nation cares for the world family. Collect stamps about families to place here." or "The Food and Agriculture Organization works to help all people have enough healthy food to eat. Find some stamps about growing and sharing food." As a group, sort through a mixture of stamps and have the children add any stamps that they feel will illustrate that objective.

Another interesting project would be to create a large chart that identifies each member nation. Using a foreign mixture, find one stamp example from each country and mount it on the chart. Working as a group to complete a project is a good lesson in cooperation - a major goal of the United Nations as a peacekeeping organization.

As an extension lesson, challenge your members to find other U.S. issues that are related to the United Nations. They should bring them to the next meeting and explain how they are related to the United Nations and/or why they were issued. Another possible challenge: find as many different U.N. stamps that somehow incorporate the United Nations logo into the stamp's design. Reward each participant with a mint copy of the U.S. 32^ United Nations issue. •

"Toon into Stamps" is the theme for the 1995 U.S. Postal Service October National Stamp Collecting Month campaign. Twenty different commemorative stamps featuring favorite comic strip characters will draw attention to the 100th anniversary of the American comic strip.

Kids love cartoons and comic strips. As adults, we know and understand the difference between the two art forms. For the sake of this article, however, the idea of cartoons and comic strips will be assumed to be one in the same and used interchangeably.

The U.S. Postal Service has released a kit to help in the promotion of NSCM. If you have not received the kit, it is available through your local postmaster. Each kit contains a booklet of promotional ideas as well as a colorful poster. The kit provides some useful ideas to help you get started - including ideas for a Halloween stamp scavenger hunt and a haunted house mailbox contest.

Here are three different cartoon-related activities that will help put the "phun" back into philately for your youth:

(1) Create a new "stamp" cartoon character - Some of you may be familiar with the characters Natalie Philately and Stan the Answer Man - stamp cartoon character representatives of the now defunct USPS Ben Franklin Stamp Clubs. The Canadian's Stamp Traveller's Club (for youth) has "Perf," a collector whose upper head resembles the perforations of a stamp.

Have youth design a new cartoon character that somehow embodies (personifies) a youthful stamp collector. Draw the character and give it a name. I

(2) Talking stamps - Try a "Talking Stamps" contest. It's easy!! Each child will need one stamp (any stamp of his/her choice), a 4" by 6" white file card, hinges or a stamp mount, a writing instrument (pen, pencil, or marker), and a creative fun-loving mind. Write a humorous caption. The caption may or may not be related to stamps and stamp collecting.

(3) Stamp scene - Artists may enjoy the challenge of creating a scene around a stamp design. Each child chooses a stamp and mounts it any-where on a piece of paper. They must design a background around the stamp so it appears as if the stamp is one small but integral part of the rest of the drawing. Captions are optional. For example, a stamp depicting a goldfish might be hinged onto the paper. By adding artwork such as drawing a fish bowl around the goldfish and adding a greedy cat whose paws are dangling in the fish bowl water, you have completed the scene and drawn a cartoon.

I would be remiss in not telling you that the USPS is also issuing a StamPage activity in the form of a rebus - kids love to solve those types of puzzles.

In addition, the American Philatelic Society had at STAMPSHOW '95, a colorful comic book titled Stamp Trek that would be very appealing to kids. For more information about Stamp Trek, contact: APS, P.O. Box 8000-C, State College, PA 16803-8000. •

November issue

Having stamp fun with new issues - Part VIII

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

Learning "auto" be fun! When the Antique Automobile stamps come off the postal assembly line on November 3, 1995, stamp club leaders will have an opportunity to provide meaningful educational and philatelic experiences to their members.

Surprisingly, the American automobile appears on very few United States stamps. The first United States stamp to feature an automobile was an electric car shown on the 4^ value of the set marking the Pan American Exposition.

In 1952, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American Automobile Association, a stamp was issued that depicted a family car. You may want to have your youth speculate as to why the car was not identified as a particular model. (The stamp shows a composite because the Post Office Department did not want to offend one maker by showing his competitor's model.)

There are other United States stamps that depict cars and/or are related to the automobile industry. Some that come to mind are the Wheels of Freedom issue of 1960, the

12^ definitive from the Prominent Americans series depicting Henry Ford and the Model T Ford, the Traffic Safety issue of 1965, and the Classic Automobiles booklet stamps released in 1988. There has also been some Transportation series coil stamps issued that would fit into an automobile topic. Discuss how and why each would fit into a collection of automobile stamps.

Purchase a small mixture of automobile stamps. Collect books, articles, and reference materials about cars. Use these as discussion starters. What were some of the problems of early cars? Today, there are still problems with automobiles. What are they?

Prepare an alphabetical chart. Using the stamp mixture, try to find a model of a car that begins with each letter of the alphabet. If the youth can't think of a real name or find a representation in the stamp mixture, have the child make up a name.

Using the made-up car names, have members design stamps depicting futuristic cars. To add a unique twist to this project, obtain Crayola's Jumping Colors markers. This new product combines the use of markers and 3-D optical effect glasses with clear prism lenses to make the drawings jump off the pages. For the best results, follow package directions specifying how to effectively use the colored markers.

From the automobile mixture, have each child select five to 10 different car designs. Use the information on the stamps (and possibly stamp catalogs) to arrange the stamps in order by date of the car. Discuss how cars have changed over the years.

Need hinging practice? Prepare an S-shaped road on typing paper. Divide the road into six sections. Challenge your youth to find six different stamps portraying the various transportation types that might use a road (car, bus, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, jeep, buggy, fire engine, etc.). Hinge them into place along the road. If using a general mixture, stamps depicting trees, flowers, houses, etc., might be hinged alongside the road.

Get the show on the road! Try one of these activities with your group. •

"Stamp Collecting" - a first guide (book review)

By WFSC VP Youth Division MaryAnn Bowman

I've discovered a perfectly wonderful book about stamp collecting that is sure to please any young stamp collector. In fact, I purchased two copies: one for my personal philatelic reference shelf and one for a school library.

I am frequently asked to suggest reading materials about stamp collecting. Finding current philatelic literature at the reading level and interest of a child is no easy task. Thus, I was especially pleased when I stumbled upon the book "Stamp Collecting," by Neill Granger. As I pride myself in keeping abreast of the trends in this fascinating field, I can't imagine how the book could have escaped my attention.

I was first attracted to the book by its colorful cover illustrations. Available in both hardcover and paperback, the book has just slightly less than 100 pages. Introductory paragraphs for each of the six chapters sets the tone for the remainder of the topics covered within. Every page you turn to has numerous multicolored stamp illustrations with short interesting captions. Each two-page spread is a complete mini-lesson in itself.

Unlike many "how to" books about stamp collecting, *this book starts out with just the kind of interesting tidbits of information and trivia that encourages the child to read just one more page. After the reader has had an introduction to stamp curiosities, postal history, stamp printing methods, etc., the author gives helpful tips as to the tools of the trade, soaking stamps, caring for stamps, and other basics.

The reader is treated like a young adult. Topics generally reserved for adult collectors are touched upon in such a way that they are not too over-bearing or too technical to appreciate and understand.

The book concludes with information about collecting stamps by country and theme, as well as a chapter on the many ways that collectors can show and display their stamps. A mini-stamp identifier, glossary, and index complete this useful book for the collector.

Although no information was given about the author, Neill Granger, I was not at all surprised to open the book and find that Brenda Ralph Lewis was the contributing editor. Lewis was the author of another children's book that I reviewed for these pages way back in 1991. In fact, when I initially paged through this book, I instinctively knew that the book had been first published in Great Britain and could detect the influences of Brenda Ralph Lewis. Anyone familiar with her book "Stamps! A Young Collector's Guide" will undoubtedly have the same first impressions.

As an educator by profession, I know that colorful illustrations and an easy-to-read format will go far in attracting children to this book. I also know that many children will skip from page to page in a book without really reading the text. That is why I find this book so intriguing - a child can open the book to any two-page spread and be introduced to the world of stamps through the complete mini-lesson presented on those pages.

The Granger book was designed and produced by Quarto Children's Books Ltd., copyright 1994, in London. The Millbrook Press first published it in the United States. The hardcover book retails for approximately $17 and the paperback for $9.95.

Collectors of all ages will find this an enjoyable book to read. With the gift-giving season rapidly approaching, think philatelics! What new or beginning collector can you entice into our hobby with this book? •
