Kids Monthly Snail Mail

Welcome to Post From The Past!

Where you will receive a double sided letter with illustrations from a different historical figure each month, who has changed the world as we know it! This person could be a scientist, an author, an artist, or an inventor, to name a few.

Here, at Post From The Past, we strive to not just know about something, but to have a relationship with it. A relationship that touches hearts, souls, and minds

Read excellently written letters that feature timeless life stories, fascinating facts, and important life lessons, that will help children to dream big and realise the potential in themselves!

Our well-established living letters offer you something truly unique because they make the subject come alive! They are written in narrative form, meaning that they read like the author is telling you a story, and are conversational in tone. They are painstakingly researched and well-written, and are printed onto quality vintage-effect paper to really give the feel of an aged letter in your hands. Each letter has an intentional gentle tone, that is sure to touch emotions and spark the imagination; you can really picture what the author is saying and be transported to times gone by.

As a mother myself, I am very conscious of what my littles read. You can rest assured that with our letters, that you are giving your children an educational resource of beauty, without having to worry about the suitability of the contents!

Our snail mail offers so much more than just dry facts that can be pieced together from textbooks - they help to shape who you are as a person, and with the vast learning opportunities, they are sure to spark other ideas of your own, for added learning.

Imagine if you could ignite a passion within your child for History, Science, Math, Geography, Art, or Music, where learning lasts, like never before!

With your letter each month, you will also receive a photograph of each historical figure, PLUS you will also receive access to our FREE digital downloads to pair with your letter each month, that are jam-packed with puzzles, fact files, colouring pages, extra information, recipes, copy work, and so much more!

We also provide FREE worldwide shipping - making your subscription exceptional value for money!

Post From The Past is a monthly subscription. You will receive one letter every month, and you can cancel your subscription at any time. We also have the option to purchase any letters you may have missed and you can take advantage of huge savings when you purchase any of our letter sets!

With Love,

Don't just take our word for it. Here are some kind words that others are saying about Post From The Past!

Michelangelo's letter was an absolute hit! We read his letter yesterday and oh the rabbit trails we've gone down have been amazing...I was sitting here in amazement thinking about what your letter inspired in our homeschool and I had to thank you. We covered history, art history, religion, music appreciation, world culture, geography...all because of a letter in the mail! These are amazing and you do a fantastic job. worth every penny.


Wow Post From The Past! We loved our first letter about Walt Disney and then the added print outs were great. We are using your letters to focus on a famous person each month and try to discover as much as we can using your letters as a springboard for learning.  We are both already excited for next month.


I wanted to say how awesome it was to receive our first letter here in Canada on our FIRST day of School (great timing!) And not only that, but the letter is from George Washington Carver, who I have a study planned for this fall! How mystic and beautiful was that! We are so happy and look forward to this year of receiving more letters. Thank you for adding a special something to our homeschool experience.

This was an absolutely fantastic letter! The way you wrote it not only made you feel like you'd actually discovered a real letter he'd thrown overboard but there was so many interesting facts that we didn't know! You really have something unique here! :)


This has exceeded expectations and I can't wait to use the printable guide with this for our studies.
