Our Mailbox

I’ve had the idea of making a mailbox for a while, but Love Bug has been so into mail lately that I knew I needed to do it while he was still interested. He always pretends he’s walking to the imaginary mailbox in our hallway. (He and Sweet Pea get cards, I get a magazine, and Daddy gets bills.) So finally I made our mailbox last night.

I took an old diaper box, taped it shut with packing tape, extended one of the handle holes, and then cut out a flap at the bottom for where he can get out the mail. Then I covered it with blue construction paper.

It’s a huge hit! He was so excited when he saw it this morning when he woke up. And we also did a project where we made mail using old envelopes, address labels, and stamps that I got at this site.
