Default Can we send children's colour pencil drawings ?

I know we cant send greeting cards and postcards. However my grandson has drawn a space rocket for my husband and wants to send it.Its in coloured pencil and it has no glitter or stickers.

I dont want to send a picture I want to send the original. Does anyone know if childrens drawings are allowed?

Don't think so hun. I think they'll photocopy it in black and white. Better off colour photocopying it and sending that.

I think I am going to take a photo of it as a back up. Then he can at least see it in colour.I can live with the greeting card and postcard ban but I am gutted about the ban on kids drawings. That is sad that inmates cant receive their childrens drawings.

Nope. My grandkids sent drawings and he got a rejection notice. I called mailroom and was told I could make copies and send those to him.

It's gotten so crazy , N has told me that I can still use colored pens to write in and coloured paper too, but the mailroom lady told me she would send that back. I really do think it comes down to whoever is working mail that day. Maybe scan it and print it so he can see it in colour that way it stays full size too?

I called the mail room and its a big NO.Even though its colour pencil and not crayon and there there no stickers or glitter. It would be considered contraband. How sad they have to go this far.

Yeah I'd tell them that a color copy would need to be made first of that item and then they can send the copy in.

Better be safe than sorry.

It is sad especially for the kids that want to send drawings.
