What You Need:
Additional decor that can be glued or used somehow in the design (i.e. stickers)
Disposable bowl/plastic cup for water (to clean paint off the brushes)
Newspaper/Paper towels (to protect the area where you’re painting)
Small, wooden or metallic (white) mailbox
What To Do:
Our suggestion for this fun childrens craft project is to display the finished mailboxes outside of the child’s bedrooms or someplace inside the home, with the idea of parents/siblings putting notes, small gifts, etc. in them. It’s exciting for a child to open it and see things inside.
Simply let your sense of creativity gear up and paint the plain mailboxes into works of art. A variety of decor can be used besides paint, but of course paint is recommended.
It’s best to let the mailboxes air dry, preferably outdoors or by an open window. Once dry, either mount onto a wall outside of the child’s room, or set up on a stand or table outside of the child’s room (be careful not to create a trip hazard). Have fun interacting with your children with this project. Years later they will look back on it and all the fond memories associated with it.
