This little mailbox appears in our house around this time every year.
My older daughter brought it home from school several years ago. Lovingly decorated with an abundance of foam stickers, it sits atop a stack of books on the hallway bookcase. Lying nearby are a pad and pen, used to scribble short notes to other family members.
When the flag is up, you know it’s time to open the small door and see if you’ve got mail. Or, if you don’t happen to pass through the hallway often enough, a miniature postal worker may remind you to check your mail!
I’m happy to have another fun way to keep the lines of communication open!
Do you have a favorite method for passing little notes to your children or are there other ways you encourage them with the written word?
