Pretend Play - Post Office

With all the excitement from the Holidays of sending and receiving cards, it only seemed the natural next step to make our own Post Office.

I covered a smallish box with blue and white construction paper. Little Mister decorated the sides with all kinds of things that 'carry mail' (i.e. trucks, trains, planes, boats...)!
We used our abundance of Christmas stickers as stamps.
To add a little language learning to this play time, I added names on the front of each envelop. We mailed the letter N to Nonnie and the letter G to Granny and so on.
We delivered the mail with Zoo trucks and a Larry-copter. 
The fun is endless!

Enjoy the Play!

  1. How fun! I feel that it's hard to find pretend play that isn't geared towards girls, or even stuff that's gender neutral.
    This little post office is great, I'll have to make one up for my boys sometime soon!
    Thanks for posting!
