Teach your children the difference between stamps and stickers
Kids love stickers. If they see a stamp they’ll likely think it’s a sticker.
Explain to them what a stamp is for then show them.
Three ways to do this:
- Take them with you when buying stamps and let them “pay” for the stamps at the counter
- Let them help you put postage on an envelope at home
- Take them to the post office and let them interact with the staff when you need to mail something. This will help reinforce that mailing things cost money.
This will teach them the value of a stamp and you won’t need to worry about finding your stamps all over their favorite books or on the furniture one day.
