DIY play envelopes & stamps

When my boys were younger they used to love making little letters. I’ve put together an all-in-one envelope template and play stamps in the hope that it might inspire a little one that you know to create some snail mail too!

You can make a little postbox if you want. There are some great examples on pinterest.

By the way, I’ve been making a few changes around here in order to make my website mobile friendly so it may look a bit different to usual. I hope you like it!

HOW TO
– – – – – – –

1. Print out the all-in-one template (the pdf is at bottom of post). Set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘grayscale’. Cut around the outside of the template.

2. Score along the dotted lines and fold. You can now write your letter!

3. When you have finished your letter fold the letter up and tuck the flap in between the two layers of paper. This will secure the envelope at the sides.

4. Don’t forget the address and stamp

5. Write wonderful letters to all your favorite people!

‘Tell the time’ clock // free printable

My boys are learning to tell the time at the moment. I tried to find a printable ‘learning clock’ online, but struggled to find a decent one, so it seemed like a good idea to make my own.

There are two different versions. There’s a green and blue one (to help understand ‘minutes-past’ and ‘minutes-to’). There is also a standard clock (one in rainbow and one in black and red).

I don’t normally design learning aids so if there are any teachers out there with any useful comments or bits of advice then please leave a comment ^_^
