It was just after lunch. We had pasta + something I can't remember, and the pasta box was empty. "Let's make a mailbox" I said, and she was very enthusiastic.


We choose a wrapping paper and glued it to the box, then used tape (a strong one) to put it on the door to her room. While she looked at something else I put a postcard and an envelope (with a little note inside) in the box. Then we played posting and picking up post for a while ;-)


  1. Ooh I love it! You are such a wonderful engaging mother. :)

  2. I've been thinking about buying mailboxes for my kids to send each other messages and play mailman. This idea is much cooler! Thank you!

  3. Amy, thank you, your words make me happy :)

    Gretchen, this is so easy, try it! :-) Or if you wrap it in plain white paper you can have your kids paint one like a postbox too :)
