Our Post Office

This morning things were a little hairy. Charley's nose seemed to have stopped running but his mood left much to be desired. So I found two shoe boxes and a load of stickers, foamy stickies, and markers and we decorated their very own mailboxes. They then picked special spots to place their mailboxes. I set up a post office with markers and stampers. Gave them each a folder with paper and envelopes...the folder made it that much more exciting and official. Now they are busy making mail, checking their boxes, and thanking each other for their nice letters. I am even getting quite the load of mail.

This is something I grew up playing with my mom, sister, brother, and friends. It is something my mom, I am assuming, started and it was a hit for years and years. So I will carry on the mailbox tradition. Happy Thursday!

Awesome idea Sarah - now if I posed this idea to Braden and Evan they would stare at me like I was crazy. You must be a good sales lady!!

What a good Mommy you are! I am going to have to copy this idea at our house. :)

I saw your post about getting out to the bouncy place(can't think of the name), next time you go, call us we will go with is that for inviting ourselves?

Wish I was there to put mail in everyone's box!! Kids love this even when they are older.
