Freebie: Mer-Mail & Mini Mermaid Mailboxes

Is there anything more exciting than receiving surprise snail mail? I’m here to tell you there is, and it comes in the form of mini mail sent from the deepest depths of the deep blue sea. Ever wondered how sea creatures send greetings or Mer-folk mail packages? By Mer-Mail of course! I have it on good authority that the Seahorse Express promptly delivers twice a day, in stormy or calm conditions. Want to test out the theory? You can make your own Mer-Mailbox and see what happens…

Made from a simple tea box and our free Mermail craft printable, this mailbox and mini-letter set provides a perfect way to communicate with your mer-friends! In addition to the mini-mail play setup, there are human-sized mermaid-themed cards + stickers to send on dry land too!

And don’t be surprised if your first delivery arrives a little soggy…I hear the Loggerheads over in the Rush Delivery Department are speedy, but super casual. 😉
