Mail Call

I want Claire to have a mailbox for pretend play (inspiration came from No Time For Flash Cards), but we don’t need yet another plastic toy around, and I could use the money on something else. Besides, any day we use paint is considered a good day according to Claire. 🙂

So I dug out a shoebox, and Claire painted it. Blue blue blue! I painted on the word, then gave it a coat of Mod-Podge to seal it. Voila!

    Cool! Now she needs Mr. Postman to deliver some snail mail!

    I’m inspired — will try making something similar with Speck this week or next. She loves the mail, the mail slot, and my attempts to make fake mail out of a brown paper bag (addressed to her, us, or many of her toys), so this would be a huge hit! Plus, a use for real junk mail! 🙂
