DIY mailbox for kids.

This is the easiest and cheapest DIY project ever! Our 2-year-old has been all about "mailing" things lately. She's constantly trying to put objects in any type of compartment or hole she can find (this could get awkward really soon, I'm sure). So yesterday, I found an old box, cut off the closure flaps, cut a slit into the side of the box, and created a little mailbox for our little postal delivery worker. I painted it white because we had some left-over white paint in the house, wrote "MAILBOX" on it in big letters with a marker, and turned the box's closure flaps (from the bottom of the box) into letters that she can "mail". I'm sure I could have made this much fancier, but hey... I didn't. Super easy and our 2-year-old is obsessed.

Now where can I find cute postal worker dress-up clothes?


  1. My 19 month old is all about putting things in and taking things out, too. Might have to do this.

  2. You should! I made it in 10 mins, plus the overnight dry. Cute surprise in the morning to keep them busy:)
