💡Skills: Writing letters helps children develop literacy skills and pretending helps children understand a delivery person’s job. Making their own mailboxes helps your young hero develop the muscles in their hands and fingers!
Blue’s Clues’ fans know the power of the mailbox and the delivery people who bring mail and packages to our homes! Work with your little delivery guy or gal to make a mailbox, fill it with handmade letters, and deliver them around home.
☑ Empty Box (a shoe box, a tissue box, an empty cracker box, etc.)
☑ Markers, crayons, or pencils
☑ Printable (optional)
Here’s how to explain this activity to your child:
If your child needs an extra challenge, wait a few days for the mailbox to fill up and then deliver all the mail. Make special stamps out of stickers or crayons to put on each letter. Add the address, e.g., “Maria’s room” or “Kitchen.” Or try creating a card using Noggin’s printable mail kit and put it in the mailbox for your real mail delivery person to say thank you. If your child is younger, work together to create one card and deliver it to someone in your home.
Print your mailtime kit, get inspired to decorate your mailbox, and sing the “Mail Time” song along with Josh, Joe and Steve!
