      Such a cute idea! Thinking about making and mailing one to my daughter-in-law who is a stay at home mom with a 2 year old & a 4 year old that are confined inside due to lots and lots of snow.

      A very lovely thought. I expect it would bring a smile to many people when they're feeling a bit sad.
