What about a special “Santa Mailbox” where the kiddos can send notes to Santa, AND Santa can send messages back???? Oooh, how fun! Here’s what I did!
Next, I found a paper mache mailbox at Hobby Lobby….
(Granted, I could’ve created one from an oatmeal box and some cardboard, but this thing was $4.99 with a 40% coupon…come on!)…..
The bottom of the mailbox and top of the coat rack needed to be “bonded” together, so I did that with a simple screw and screwdriver.
Next Step…let’s cover the coat rack!…..
Make sure to coat the ribbon with lots of Mod Podge on the base as well as the top coat.
Next step….Let’s cover the base of the paper mache mailbox:
I found some handwritten notes to Santa (with a litttle help, I suppose….)
When my boys leave a letter for Santa they put the flag up….the next morning it’s down…which means it was “sent” to Santa!!!! Christmas morning the flag is back UP with a note from Santa, and they’re THRILLED!!!!
This is a wonderful tradition to start with your family! Hope this inpired you today!
