A Meaningful Mother’s Day Craft: No Glue Required
The coolest Mother’s Day present I ever got was not meant to be a Mother’s Day present at all. It was actually something we purchased for Valentine’s Day, to put Valentines in.
Monkey decided to make it a real mail box so we could send notes back and forth. She would write me a note, then I would write her a note. We’ve done this for several months now, and I love reading her funny little notes.
A mailbox like this is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day from a young kid. No assembly required!
Take a look at how Monkey decorated ours:
|And a correctly-used apostrophe!|
She did this all herself, but if you wanted to make a cute label, I’m not going to stop you. You could print a cute one by using PicMonkey to create a more “professional” design.
I love getting notes from Monkey (and eventually Bo). The notes say a lot about her and sometimes she will say something in a note that she won’t say in conversations.
If you want something for Mother’s Day that is meaningful, inexpensive, and doesn’t require you to do much, try a mailbox!

Just stick the label on the side of the box and write whatever you want on it. Ours has two sides so Monkey made a label for each side. One says “mom’s side” and the other says, “Monkey’s side.”
A meaningful Mother’s Day present in 20 seconds. That is a project I can totally get on board with.
