My boys had a brain storm and decided to get creative. Here is what they come up with.
They took two unfinished wooden mailboxes and sprayed walnut ink on them. They used a damp paper towel to rub the ink in.
Once they got the ink on they let it dry. Next they glued Harry Potter paper and embellishments on the mail box. Then I hot glued Styrofoam balls on the top and they glued feather on it complete with eyes and beak.
Each box is the house they liked in Harry Potter. Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. They wrote letters of acceptance and addressed them accordingly. One letter goes to Harry the other to a Mr. Boot who lives in Cardiff.
