The holidays are almost here, so let’s develop early literacy while spreading holiday cheer!
If your child is distracted by holidays, then try mixing learning with holiday-themed play! This DIY mailbox and holiday card-making station will have your child writing and play-pretending in no time. Playing pretend helps develop narrative skills, an important step in early literacy; creating their own cards and letters (real OR pretend) improves dexterity, writing skills and reading skills as well as exposes your child to more letters and words. Best of all, this learning-packed activity can be played year-round!
Watch the video tutorial below or read the instructions with this free printable to learn how to make your own mailbox and card-making station.
