There are lots of ways to make mailbags and mailboxes to hold class Valentine cards. Here’s a simple way that uses file folders.
Today’s post is written by Bren, a contributor to PreKinders.
- File folders
- Hole punch
- Yarn (About 2 ½ ft per child)
- Materials for decorating
Using the hole punch, make holes across the bottom and along both sides of the file folder (using a 3 hole-punch is easier and faster).
How to Make the Valentine Mailbag:
Have the children lace up the 3 sides. It is helpful if you wrap the end of the yarn with masking tape or use a plastic needle. Use a piece of yarn to make a handle.
Let the children decorate their mailbag with markers, dot paint, construction paper hearts, stickers, etc.
Very simple and inexpensive!
