My Valentine Idea

Walmart had these white cardboard mailboxes that you assemble and decorate for $4. The idea is to let the kids decorate the mailbox and tell them that there is a legend about 2 valentine mice named Mitch and Millie. If you make a box and leave them a note each night for the first 2 weeks of February, they will leave you a note the next morning and a treat.

I bought a little heart shaped notebook to place in the mailbox, so that they can write a note every night and Mitch and Millie will respond with a question or a joke and a piece of gum, candy, stickers etc the next morning. It should be fun!!
