Educating children can be a challenge, especially when it comes to subjects like geography which many children consider to be boring. For these reasons, educating through entertainment is becoming increasingly popular with many teachers and parents. Games, apps and stories can all help engage children’s interest and subsequently teach them without the little ones necessarily being aware that they are learning. “Heckery Dekkery Dot Travel Game Postcards” is just such a fun learning tool.
Heckery Dekkery Dot Travel Game Postcards were created by Cheryl Davis Hornung who has been recognized by “Worldwide Who’s Who” for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in entrepreneurship. The postcards are actually a travel game which enables all players to learn more about the world around them by getting young players acquainted with other parts of the world and, subsequently, increasing their respect for other cultures in a fun, easygoing, and carefree manner. The postcards are sent in the real mail via two convenient online mailing locations, the United States and Europe. And, you have the possibility to create your own postcard or to choose one ready-made.
Ms. Hornung resides in Germany and is an accomplished traveler. She has always enjoyed receiving and sending travel postcards from faraway places and was eager to share that tradition with her grandchildren. Ms. Hornung, however, found out that it could be a challenge to find travel postcards that were actually geared toward children. Moreover, far too many children’s postcards had nothing to do with any famous site! Therefore, on a second trip to Goteborg, Sweden, Ms. Hornung decided to make her own postcards and the idea for “If U Were Here” was born. That idea ultimately led to the development of “Heckery Dekkery Dot Travel Game Postcards” which is now trademarked in Germany and the United States (and is seeking expansion to other territories). The name is based on the last names of her grandchildren, Hecker and Dekker.
Ms. Hornung holds the Bachelor of Music degree in music education from Wilkes University. She leads a small English literature group in Germany composed of German women, and she is a member of an English book club composed of American women. Ms. Hornung plans to introduce Heckery Dekkery Dot Travel Game Postcards for Children as part of a classroom exchange and to offer her services to charitable organizations for fundraising, especially for charities involving children. Although it is currently possible to send postcards from smartphones and tablets with ease, Ms. Hornung would also like to develop an app which would make the process even easier. And Ms. Hornung has even more ideas for the future. According to a recent email exchange she stated:
“I would like to see children upload their own photos and their own art to create postcards for their friends and relatives. And, of course, I would like to see organizations use the site for fundraising. I have also arranged for an environmentally safe blog spot for children – Heckery Dekkery Kids – so it would be possible for families to have their own blog on the site. It would be especially suitable, I think, for families when they have to be away for long periods of time while a child is receiving medical treatment for example. I have lots of ideas, but not enough time to pursue all of them!”
As the owner of a sole proprietorship, Ms. Hornung is responsible for promoting her business through networking and marketing as well as for developing the graphics for her postcards. Heckery Dekkery Dot Travel Game Postcards for Children works together with a fun and fact-filled website for the would-be virtual traveler to enjoy anytime, anywhere.
