Valentine Mailboxes

We interrupt our transportation ideas to share with you a fabulous find: these adorable tin mailboxes! Found at the Dollar Spot at Target. Yes, you read that right. ONE DOLLAR!! I found some near the beginning of the month–I snagged the last 3. Then, on a trip there today, they had completely restocked so we picked up a couple more. They had them in red and white, bright pink and a turquoise blue. And yes, the flag goes up and down like a real mailbox!

We decorated ours with Valentine-themed stickers, but my first idea was to use stickers or vinyl to write each person’s name. My kids wanted to place them outside their bedrooms. We have enjoyed leaving little notes, treats, or other surprises for our family members to find! I even bought cute paper and stickers to make it extra special. What a fun way to show love for Valentine’s Day! (and this teacher-mom can’t help but get excited about all the learning and writing and reading that is taking place!)

Have you done mailboxes before? What would you leave inside?
