I found the cutest little red mailbox in the dollar spot at Target (hurry! there may be some still left!). I wanted to use it for my boys for Valentine's Day but I wasn't quite sure how.
We've had several snow days here so I pulled it out and announced that we would be writing letters (or drawing pictures) for our family. We would put them in the little mailbox and open it up every night at dinner. My Kindergartner has really caught the vision of this this project! He sits at the table forever drawing picture after picture for his brothers (and occasionally Dad), folding them up, and stuffing them in the mailbox. In fact, for his game last night he chose to draw some more pictures! Sounds great to me! I'm sure that his excitement will wane as the month goes on but for now it is such a fun way to show love to one another.
I may even use our little mailbox for some small gifts for the boys on Valentine's Day. Who knows what fun this could bring?!
