When I was young I took great delight in making my valentine boxes each year. I've been creative my whole life, and Valentine's Day was one of those opportunities I always took to let my little crafty freak flag fly! My mom always got into my valentine boxes as well and would help me come up with some good ideas . . . then she'd buy the supplies for my execution . . . or get stuff out of the recycling bin. I have to say my mom was really good at putting cereal/shipping boxes and some store bought supplies together to make some really unique and creative Valentine's Day mailboxes for us. Of course she'd have the most brilliant ideas out of all of us, and then we would execute. It was one of those times that my four brothers and I would work together. We absolutely loved making our boxes!
If you're looking for some fun ideas for Valentine's Day boxes for your littles, I've got some great ideas for you! While they look fancy, a lot of household supplies are used (including recyclables) and they are pretty easy to put together. Because what we're all looking for is a project that 1) is fun to create and 2) looks as good as possible for as little effort as possible. Well – maybe not all the time, but at least for children with a short attention span!
