Gifts for grandkids from grandparents who can’t see them

We are in our sixties with health issues so are currently not seeing our grandkids 2 and 5 for weeks ahead. I want to send a little something in the post once a week to help keep them amused and as a little token of our love. Only inexpensive things. Have got sticker / work books, stencils to draw with ready to send. Any other little ideas we could post or order from Amazon? Grateful for any suggestions.

My 2yo would amuse himself for awhile with a bouncy ball, a little toy animal or car, arts and crafts things, baking so even sending a cake mix could help, maybe a football, all can be found cheap and cheerful. It's such a lovely and thoughtful idea x
