Ideas for Easy Preschool Paper Mail Carrier Craft
Below are a few lists of amazing ideas on how to incorporate this free printable mail carrier craft template in your kids’ daily life.
1. Mail Carrier Children’s Book Collection
The best way to teach a child to read is by making it entertaining.
Enjoying a book with your little one is a great opportunity to share experiences together.
It will also help them learn to speak, start a good conversation and read early by themselves.
We listed down some of the great books to pair with your mail carrier craft.
- Delivering Your Mail: A Book About Mail Carriers (Community Workers)

- Seven Little Postmen (A Little Golden Book)
- A Day With Mail Carriers (Rookie Read-About Community)
2. Improve your Child’s Creative Writing Skills
Help your child improve their writing skills by giving them everyday activities like drawing, coloring worksheets and this free printable mail carrier craft template.
Tell your little one the things a mail carrier does, it will motivate them to write a letter to a family member, friend or classmate.
If your child just started to learn how to properly hold a pencil, give them tracing alphabet letters worksheets.
To keep their interest in enhancing their writing skills, enjoy any printable template from our A-to-Z Alphabet Crafts.
3. Letters for your Loved Ones
Kids have naturally sweet personalities! You can see a child sharing their toys and candies with their friends.
If your little one is done working on this easy cut-and-paste mail carrier craft, help them to make handmade letters for their loved ones.
Instruct your kids to write down all the things they want to say to the receiver.
My little one usually goes with a “Hello my dearest friend, I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can’t wait to play with you soon”
It may sound simple but it’s the sincerest letter because it came from the heart.
When your child is done with the letter, put it in an envelope and seal it with a sticker.
We decided to make the finished mail carrier craft as the seal sticker.
Simply put a double-sided tape at the back of the craft and place it over the envelope flap to secure the letter.
Lastly, drop the letter to a post box or take it to the nearest post office branch.
If you’re looking for more designs to use as envelope seal stickers, try these:

Have your child enjoy the process of coloring, cutting and gluing together the pattern pieces.
Glue the finished mail carrier craft on a small paper lunch bag or glue a large popsicle stick at the back of the craft.
Create a simple puppet theatre using recycled or common materials for a fun pretend play.
Encourage your child to use their imaginations and come up with short dialogue as they play along.
