Great way to encourage writing activities by writing “letters to Santa” with their own home made mailbox.


Material

  • 1 Sheet Wrapping Paper
  • 1 Empty Chip Carton
  • Roll Sticky Tape

Method

  1. Wrap the chip packet box in wrapping paper leaving the flap open. Wrap the flap of the box as well.
  2. To make the flap like a real post box fold a small square of wrapping paper into a triangle and tape in the corners of where the flap is. Tape onto the edge of the box.
  3. Make a sign on your box.

  • Apart from a Xmas decoration, I don’t see the point of this as they can write a letter and put it in the real letterbox AND get a reply from Santa
