We Love Mail

With the holidays and the extremely cold weather I feel like my family has gone into a slight hibernation mode…. Not really….but kinda so it was really important to me that we maximized our Saturday and visit a new site. Today my family visited the National Postal Museum. My daughter really LOVES mail! On a daily bases she is coloring cards, stuffing them in envelopes and using little stickers as her postage. While no “special” events were held today the staple exhibits alone were enough to hold our interest. One of the coolest parts of the museum had to be the highlighted area on stamps. Walls lined with mailboxes from around the world fascinated us as we led up to an area where you are able to sift through international stamps and choose a few to start your very own collection. Hands on things really rock our world. Liv decided she is interested in a stamp collection that incorporates animals. Additionally, the museum hosts a machine where guest can make “Cinderella Stamps” cute yet unusable for postage stamps. Check ours out below

And of course what is a field trip without stopping at the gift shop for a little take home goodness.
Liv has officially stepped up her mail sending play with this Melissa & Doug mailbox set
