Emily does not know it yet, but I am going to surprise her with this homemade felt play mail set for Valentine's Day! Isn't it cute? I know, I know, 25 cent postage... those were the days, right?
As a learning tool, the address labels and stamps can be moved around. She can practice placing the stamp on the top right corner to re-enforce left vs. right, and the envelopes can be "sealed" with a button - great practice for fine motor skills. She already knows the words "To", "For", "You", "I", "Love", and "Emily", so this will help her become more familiar with those words as well. I hope she enjoys playing with them as much as I enjoyed making them!
