We have decided to look at people who help us. This is part of our week theme of people. We decided to look at the people who deliver our post. Little Boo loves posting things and we also managed to find some fantastic resources in our local library and toy library. It has been a great activity which has incorporated loads of fun learning including mark making, number recognition and communication to name just a few.
To start with we did a few activities which were centred around people who help us.
|First we sorted them into heads, belly's and feet. I then gave Little Boo a couple to match up|

I decided to make a post box so that we could have some imaginary play and thought it would be a great idea if Little Boo could make her own postcards to post.

|Adding a stamp (these were just from the Internet)|
|Writing the address on the envelope|
Before we started to create our postbox we looked at our library book together so Little Boo could learn about a post deliverer.
We made a postbox from an empty box as you can see Little Boo had already been playing with it. We just painted this red then painted five doors as well.
|Putting the box post together I could of use a hot glue gun but at least doing it this way Little Boo can join in.|
