Mail a little love

Michael loves writing letters and drawing pictures for us and is always asking to put them in our mail box. He has recently started asking to go out by himself and snuck out last week to ‘post’ a letter for me. I freaked out a little, although our street is no where near as busy as our old old, I am not comfortable with them out the front by themselves even if its just to put something in the mailbox so last week we decided to make a mail box for him that stays inside the house. The he got very very sick! Involving a trip to the ER and a few days off school and in bed (torture for him) as we tried to get his temperature down and him well again

This meant that very little creating was done in our house so when I dropped Michael off at Kindy today knowing I only a had few hours to get anything done (he has half days on Tuesday) I decided that today was the day to make a mailbox

I used one of the boxes I had left over from Zac's birthday party


Put it together and then cut out a mail slot


and a flap at the back to get the mail out


with a little spot for little hands to open it


Covered it in red wrapping paper


and put it in its new home


Then went to go get Michael from school.

He saw it as soon as he came in and went right to work writing a letter


and mailing a little love for me


Love my little man he has the sweetest little heart
