My lovely niece turned eight this past summer and I'm just now giving her a gift (oops!). While we were living out of state it was fun to receive a few letters and notes from her. I was inspired by both this and this to make a letter kit in a box for her. I just added a book of stamps to the kit and plan on delivering it to her this week.
I recently shared all the details of this project over at Playful Learning. Head over there if you're interested in making one of your own!
