A mini mailbox paper craft template.
DIY Classroom Mailbox for Teacher-Student Communication
This mini mailbox template can be used in a variety of ways! Use it as a whole class positivity initiative, an individual rewards system, an advanced look at nets of 3D objects and many more.
Print the Colour template on an A3 sheet, and assemble a ‘not so mini’ postbox for the whole class. Students post their positive letters and messages to their peers. The teacher acts as the delivery person by checking the mail, stamping it and delivering to the individual students.
Individual Student Postboxes
Provide students with the black and white option to colour and add their name to the front of the mailbox. The mailboxes can be placed on each student’s desk or all together in one location. The teacher can deliver written notes to each student that can be read out during a ‘mail time.’
Use the Mini Mailbox at home to deliver messages or rewards vouchers. Print and assemble multiple templates and use as part of imaginative play. Children become delivery person; they sort through the mail and then deliver to the correct address (e.g. 123 Cupboard Under the Sink, Kitchen 4321).
How to Build Your DIY Mailbox
- Cut out the Mini Mailbox front and back templates.
- Then, cut out the mail slot on the front template.
- On the back template, you will notice a dotted line – cut along this to create a flap.
- Attach tab ‘A’ to the Mini Mailbox back where shown.
- Fold all other tabs.
- Complete the assembly of the Mini Mailbox by sticking the remaining tabs in place.
