Included are various signs, labels, employee badge, checklist, postcards, and envelopes. Stock your dramatic play area with dress up clothes and accessories; have postal worker clothes and accessories if possible. Add various sizes of boxes for sorting. Add papers, postcards, envelops, writing utensils, stamps, and stickers either in your dramatic play area, or place your writing center close to the dramatic play area. Add a cash register and play money to the dramatic play area. Allow children to help create a mailbox to add to the area. I have included directions on how to create a mailbox. Laminate the signs, and add them wherever they fit in your dramatic play area. Laminate the labels, checklists, postcards, and envelopes; add to the dramatic play area. Allow children to write on the checklist, postcards, and envelopes with dry erase markers. Have extra non laminated postcards and envelopes for children to write, stamp, and decorate with stickers. There are two hours signs. One has hours listed; the other has no hours listed. The children can make their own marks on the blank hour signs. Other signs include Weigh Boxes Here, Sort Boxes, Sort Envelopes, Pay Here, Welcome, Open, and Closed. Labels include mail truck, tape, mailbox, hat, paper towels, parcels, envelope, and stamps.
