Family Mail Boxes!
I saw this a long time ago and thought it was such a fun and lovely idea! And, ever since, my Mom has graciously been helping me search for the metal boxes to copy it!! Well, they were not easy to come by - but eventually found on clearance at Jo-Ann's. Since they did not all match - I spray painted them all black. Then, I found a strip of magnet that I had gotten on clearance (which I intend to use for making a chore chart on the fridge one day) and cut it in sections. I wrote one of our names on each section and just placed them on the front of the mailbox!
Thank you, Christy, for the wonderful idea!
Each evening as I plan my to-do list/schedule for each day, I plan to put something in Emily's mailbox or at least plan what I'll do the next day.
Here's our list for this week:
Monday: library book - a trip to the library to sign up for the summer reading program
Tuesday: a sheet of stickers and a picture to paint
Wednesday: tennis shoes and snack - a trip to the park
Thursday: apron and spoon - help make brownies
Friday: sandals and pail - trip to the beach!
