Easy DIY Post Office Mailboxes

Glue library pockets to a piece of poster board and write your students names on the labels provided to create a space saving mail delivery center. I also added some bulletin board border around the edges of the poster board. Your students will have loads of fun delivering mail to their friends.

Postal Worker Uniforms

I found the official USPS uniform shirt pictured above at a thrift shop. The Fisher Price mail bag was a garage sale find and the blue visor was fifty cents at the craft store. I used a paint pen to write the word “mail” on the visor.

You can make your own mail bag by writing the word mail on a fabric bag with craft paint. I found the little blue bags as the craft store; they were three for one dollar.
