Felt Heart Valentine’s Day Box Craft for Kids

heart-project

Does your child need a Valentine’s Day box for their school’s holiday party? If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got answers! Before the big day arrives, check out this easy to make heart-felt (or felt hearts) box idea.

Art Materials You’ll Need

  • A shoe box- reuse a cardboard shoe box
  • Craft felt- you’ll need several sheets or 8×10-inch pieces of felt in Valentine’s Day colors (such as red, pink and purple) and a few extra hues
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue

How To Steps

  1. Cut a slit at the top of the box. This is where your child’s friends will put their Valentine’s cards.
  2. Cover the box in felt. Choose one color or use several different pieces of felt to make a patchwork design. Cut the felt to fit the box and glue it to the sides and the top. Make a slit that matches the hole you’ve already cut at the top of the box.
  3. Cut out felt hearts. Have your child fold felt sheets in half and cut out half-heart shapes. Open the felt to reveal full hearts.
  4. Glue the felt hearts to the box. Your child can line the box with the hearts, make alternating color patterns or create a random abstract design.
