Preschoolers enjoy playing dressup and many costumes can be made from items around the house. To make a Mail Carriers costume find or make a canvas bag with a short strap so it can be carried on the toddler's shoulder. Be sure to "equip" it with mail. Save old postcards, junk mail, little gift boxes, and a couple of magazines to put in your mail bag. Shoe boxes can be decorated and used for mail boxes, put them around the room or at the doors going down the hallway in your home. Use familiar neighbor, family and friend's names on the boxes so your youngster can deliver the mail to them. Go a step further and decorate an old shirt to be their uniform.
