Simple posting activity

This activity is quick, easy & cheap!

And all you need is some postal tubes, sticky tape, scissors and something to 'post' - this could be anything (well, anything that fits through the hole!) We used pom poms, plastic reptiles and fake gemstones. Ladybug liked the gems the most as they made the most noise when they landed!

Pop the ends off the postal tube and use the sticky tape to attach it to a door frame. Give your child something to post and away you go!


Many kids love to 'post' and these activities are good for developing fine motor skills and can also be used as counting and grouping activities. It's a great example of cause and effect and gravity ...and also a simple way for you to grab those extra 10 minutes to get things done!

  2. Posting is so much fun! And posting with these things is so much better than the posting they invent for themselves... with less appropriate objects! LOL
