Veronika loves when the mail truck arrives each day, so we made this cute play version at home, thanks to a suggestion in her High Five magazine. Now she can be in charge of all the mail deliveries!
To start, cover an empty cereal box with white paper, gluing or taping as needed to hold in place.
Next, I added a strip of blue duct tape for the windshield. Blue construction paper would also work for this part.
Add additional stripes with blue washi tape or markers. We used marker for details like headlights and wheels, but for real wheels, simply glue on old juice bottle caps!
I purposefully left the back of the box with the flap open, so that Veronika could really insert mail and take it out again.
We used index cards as letters, and she loved scribbling messages with crayon. Big brother Travis even ran over to write a few pieces of correspondence!
Even more fun than writing out the mail, though, was chugging her mail truck around the room before making each “delivery”!
