Adding a Post office to your Dramatic Play area adds great fun. This can be as simple as adding a few shoe boxes or bins to a table, or as complex as creating some personalized DIY mailboxes for your kiddos.
Adding some satchels or fabric grocery bags to the area allows the kids to "deliver" and "pick-up" mail to their friends.
Here are some fabulous Post Office Play Spaces from our Daycare Spaces and Ideas Community Members for you to enjoy:
