My boys and I took a little adventure to the Post Office on Saturday.
Along with our water bill, we mailed off a few plastic Easter eggs.
If you want to mail some eggs yourself, make sure you buy the Jumbo-sized eggs (we found the ones above at Walgreens).
We filled ours with some Easter grass, a few stickers, small erasers, and these FREE Printable Easter Lunchbox Love Notes.
We decided not to put chocolate in the eggs because… well, we didn’t want it to melt in transit. 🙂
Slap on the address label and wrap the eggs with packing tape.
Then head to the post office.
Ironically, our postman’s name was Jesus.
He kept chuckling because the eggs wouldn’t stop rolling off the scale.
They didn’t look the prettiest after getting stamped and wrapped with tracking codes and postage (about $2 each), but they were still going to be a cute thing to find in a mailbox.
I mean ANYTHING is better than a bill or catalog, Amen?!
When all the eggs were ready, Jesus was all smiles and even thanked us for making his day more fun.
I mean, you can only handle so many flat things and cardboard boxes, you know? 🙂
Happy Easter Egg in the Mail-ing! 🙂
What a great idea! It brought a smile to my face this morning….THANK YOU!
I love this idea, I will miss it this years but the kids would love to get an egg in the mail….
So we went to mail our eggs and our local post office said no. So we will make a trip to the main office downtown. Thanks for the great ideas. I check out your blog at least once a week. Happy Easter.
