Domain: Cognitive Development
Set up a space where children can create cards and letters for each other. You can include different types and sizes of paper and envelopes, stickers, stamps/stampers, and a list of the names of the children. Encourage children to draw and write or dictate messages to one another. You can create a mailbox space using a box with dividers or hanging shoe storage and label a spot for each child.
Goal: Children will communicate with each other with drawing and writing.
