  • Regular price £12.00

Starting school is a very big moment in a little one's life and it is a day that should be remembered. This box of letters will help them create a box of memories to look back on in the years to come.

There are five origami folded letters inside the box, and each one features a prompt to help the child to describe their first day at school. They can draw pictures and write a word or two, or an adult can write for them.

Open the letters and draw and write about the day: 'What I looked like', 'My teacher', 'What I did', etc. You could even include photos from the day.

Keep this box safe and enjoy reading the letters in the years to come.

The top of the box is personalised with the child's name, so that it reads 'Letters by {child's name} on his / her 1st day of school'. The name can be printed in green, purple, pink or yellow. Please note that a maximum of 12 characters can be used in the name.

Each letter is folded from a single sheet of paper which is slightly smaller than A5.

There is also an instruction sheet to help you fold back up the letters after you have written them, although it is very easy!

If the box is difficult to open, please gently slide a ruler (or something similar) under the lid (from the side) and slowly ease the lid open.

Inside the cardboard box, the five letters are made from thick white paper and they are tied with silvery-grey organza ribbon.


The box measures 10.2 x 7.8 x 2.8cm and each letter is approximately 10.1 x 7.4cm when folded up. When opened, each letter is just slightly smaller than A5.
