Yet again I’m making an activity for BB that involves posting something. This time it’s actually a Christmas letter posting activity. I thought that was particularly appropriate for this time of year.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make this Christmas letter posting activity you will need:

  • Cardboard box
  • Knife
  • Red paint
  • Black paint
  • Black pen

Start by cutting a slot near the top for the letters to go through.

Then paint the box red. When that has dried paint the bottom section black so that it looks like a post box. I also added on the pick up times, like the ones you find on a real post box. Obviously you don’t have to add this if you don’t want to. I just liked the way it looked with it on there.

I set up the Christmas letter posting activity on a low table with a pile of envelopes next to it. That way BB could play with it when every he fancies it. Often he will be playing with something else, come over and post a few letters, then go back to what he was doing.
