Let's Play Mail


I can’t take credit for this creative idea at all. I saw the idea both here and here. It’s a “mail center” for Kate to play pretend mail. She won’t get the concept of it for at least another year or two but I saw the idea and found the mailbox and couldn’t wait! I got the little red mailbox at Target in the $1 section in the front of the store. It was around Valentine’s Day… so they may be out by now, but I hear you can get them at Michael’s as well. To make the pieces stiff I used pellon, which is just like a really sturdy felt. It was behind the cutting counter at Joann’s. I used scrap fabric and embroidered the sayings, names and stamps. You could make these really fast if you used a fabric marker instead of embroidering. I enjoy having something to do while I watch TV, so I didn’t mind embroidering. I also was very minimal about how many postcards I made. I plan to make more “pieces of mail” and envelopes too, but I think I’ll wait until she actually wants to play mail. Right now she’s into taking the pieces out of the mailbox and putting them back in. She’s also fascinated by the Velcro. I used sticky Velcro to hold the names and stamps in place. This was very simple, fun and inexpensive. We try not to spend too much money on toys (especially big, tacky, plastic ones) so this provides some new entertainment until winter is over and we can go outside! And then hopefully next year she will have fun “sending mail” to all her favorite people. Because, unfortunately, many of them live too far away!

you are so creative! i love all these projects you've done, i'll have to copy some one day. i also like the idea of not having a lot of the oversized plastic toys.

Jill those look great. My girls loved getting them for Valentines day! It's fun now, because Gabs can look at the names and figure out who she's sending it too based on letters she knows. I must say, the envelopes were the biggest hit. They love stuffing them with the envelopes (folded in half) and the little love letters. The velcro has kept Gwen plenty occupied too. I'm all for "made with love" gifts that will never get thrown away. They're way better than those big plastic things that look ugly sitting in the room! Very cute!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
