Minnie has spent hours playing with the Post Office, writing, drawing, sticking, counting, stamping, posting, measuring, ordering, weighing, sorting, cutting, selecting coins, balancing objects, & serving customers.

Every time items were bought from the Post Office, Minnie gave the customer a receipt from her cash till. (These were just a collection of old receipts I’d found in my purse, but Minnie enjoyed handling them & giving them out to her customers.) I soon discovered everything at the Post Office was £2... I’m guessing that’s due to inflation! ;o)
I loved watching her sort parcels into sizes & shapes, & listening to her comment ‘too big, too small’ when placing objects inside them. She’s enjoyed writing letters & collecting other mail from the post box to sort. She’s delivered mail & parcels around the house, & excitedly collected any other items of mail she can find, even bills! Junk mail, which is normally recycled, has been great for Minnie to play with, & she’s really enjoyed finding numbers, letters & words that she recognises on the leaflets.
