Post Office Role Play

Children will enjoy this role play activity, drawing upon their experiences and developing many different areas of learning.

Set aside an area of the room for this activity. Place a table and some chairs as a desk with a till and some play money. Give the children scales to weigh their parcels, pads of paper, pencils, ink pads and stamps, and enlarged copied 1st and 2nd class stamps.

If your setting does not have a post box, find a cardboard box of any size, tape up the flaps and cut a slot in one side and a small door to get the letters out on the other. The children will have fun painting and decorating their own post box. As well as this give the children some brown parcel paper and boxes of different sizes such as cereal boxes, toothpaste boxes etc, to wrap up and send.

To make this more realistic, visit your local post office and pick up different leaflets, forms and special and recorded delivery slips and stickers for the children to use in their post office.

  1. I am in the process of doing a TA course and we are covering how games help with the classroom. This Post Office role play and other forms of role play have been very informative

  2. Really like this activity. I am going to take the children to post a letter in the morning and then do this activity in the afternoon.
