An Idea for the Kids while You Work – My Very Own Mail

bookwormPart of my mission here at Family Business Ideas is to teach you how to include your children in your work at home business or at least give you wonderful resources to help you with your children while you grow your business.

I am a huge advocate of reading and teaching your children the love of books. Heavens! I sell books so I’d better love them. I have a friend, Lisa Roberson, who has created a super cool subscription service. Lisa is creatively promoting literacy while occupying your children’s hands and minds. What a concept! You order online and her package comes in the mail addressed to your child. She sends a letter with a book recommendation in it along with a craft packet. She also includes stickers, fun little trinkets or some such bonus. Check out her website My Very Own Mail.

This subscription not only takes the load off of you in trying to come up with a fun activity for the children while you work, but it comes in the mail so you can order it and forget about it.

What a neat way to provide an activity for the children. I’d find out when the mailings go out and plan a couple of hours of focused work that day. It’s much like that first hour after you come home from the library. What heavenly bliss – quiet. You won’t be disappointed with Lisa’s service. One less thing you need to think about during your work week. Enjoy!

Ask any questions you have here and I’ll make sure Mrs. Lisa answers.

Julie Anna – thank you so very much for this glowing review of My Very Own Mail!! You are so sweet! I love that I’ve found such a wonderful friend in you and that we are both so big into children and literacy!

I really appreciate it and I just love the bookworm image! I’ll do my best to keep an eye on your post, in case your readers have any questions! ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree entirely.
Yes – you could get some crafty/book stuff happening without Lisa’s service, but why would you go to all the effort when this fantastic service is available? She’s got the whole thing packaged up perfectly and it’s delivered directly to your child each month. Set and forget. ๐Ÿ™‚

Receiving personal, fun mail in your own name is exciting for adults and children alike. I think it’s great to teach our children the value of “snail mail” too. We’re all very focused on technology and the internet, but there is a lot of value in personalized, high quality, hands-on craft activities. (think fine motor skill development, language skills, reading, creative expression, etc)

Do yourself, and your child a favor and register for this cool & helpful service. You’ll be glad you did!

My kiddos loved their mail from Mrs. Lisa too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you, Jennifer! Very kind of you! And you are so right – there is hardly any personal mail anymore! The mailbox is full of bills and ads! Blech!

My daughter loved her special mail package from Mrs. Lisa (must order more!) but the sweetest thing was seeing her eyes light up when she read her name on the envelope! She squeeled with joy and said, “Mom, this is MY mail?” and when I told her yes she was over the moon. There’s just something special about getting a package in the mail with your own name on it.

Loretta – Thank you! You’ve been such an encouragement to me in regards to this business and I really appreciate that!
