This Melissa and Doug My Own Mailbox kit contains everything needed for a child to create a personalized mailbox. Kids can use the included stickers and markers to decorate, or add other supplies such as stamps and glitter.
This project is a great idea for a rainy afternoon. Younger children are able to color directly on the box, while older kids can create more complicated designs and patterns. Once completed, this mailbox is sturdy enough to last for years. Kids can use it to pass messages to each other, or as a place to store treasured cards and notes.
The low cost of this kit makes it ideal for use in small groups. Purchase several, and use them for a Valentine's Day party or a lesson on letter writing.
