When we saw the mailboxes in Joanne Barber’s classroom, we were amazed when we realized that she had made them out of inexpensive magazine holders.
Here is what Joanne had to say:
I borrowed the idea from a Pinterest page. Basically, I took cardboard magazine boxes, glued them together in a stack of six, glued another stack of six to the first set, let them dry, and covered them in contact paper to make it cuter. (I hope that makes sense!) I use bull clips with labels to put each kiddo’s name on a mail slot.
