Toys That Make Sweet Memories & a Melissa & Doug My Own Mailbox Giveaway



With three boys in our house, we are not a big arts and crafts kind of family.  Truth be told, I am not really an arts & crafts kind of gal.  I play with my children, but when we do- we wrestle, we tickle, we act crazy.  Typically we are not dignified, nor subdued.  But sometimes we like quiet time.  Reading books is a favorite, and we tend to love the creative options available from Melissa and Doug toys.

My boys recently had the opportunity to check out the Habitats Reusable Sticker Pad and a My Own Mailbox.  Traditional sticker pads are only good for one sitting.  But the reusable pad we have can be used again and again.  The boys had such fun creating their perfect scene.

Melissa and Doug is known for their wooden toys that encourage creative play.  The My Own Mailbox is a fun toy that encourages pretend play.  My boys loved creating their own letters and mailing them.  We plan on using it as a form of communication between mother and sons.  What fun!

Spending an afternoon focused on these types of projects is fun, and perfect for a winter time activity.  I imagine craft minded children would spend an even longer time with these types of classic toys.  For my boys, a good hour on these type of activities is success.

What sort of activities do your children enjoy?  My kids are also fans of the Melissa and Doug pretend food.  All these items and many more are currently available at GummyLump- a toy store that encourages Toys That Make Sweet Memories.

GummyLump has kindly offered one lucky Mama Report reader a Melissa and Doug My Own Mailbox, storytelling paper, crayons and reusable sticker pad.
