Mailbox Pretend Play for Children
Toddlers learn through play so we thought this little mailbox would be a perfect addition to your sensory table. This can be fun for ages 2-6 years.

And we all know toddlers 2-3 years  love to mimic everything we do and as we lead by example by signing our names, writing grocery list & thanks yous, licking envelopes and using stamps. They have already observed this and will most likely jump right in.

And older childrens 4-6 years will love this to make believe by playing mailman, write their own letters. It will foster learning opportunities through writing,  packages, letters, the mail carrier, & learning addresses.

Other Mailbox/ Post Office learning activities for children include:

  • playing pretend with a mailbox made for toddlers
  • sending cards as a family
  • visiting the post office
