Kids’ Valentine’s Day Box Ideas

kids' crafts

The Valentine’s Day box. It’s a staple of the elementary school classroom. When the holiday approaches and your child’s school party draws near, you get that letter (or rather, email) from the teacher. It announces the need for a creative, colorful and ultimately cool box to put all of the class’s cards in. Whether your child’s class has a Valentine’s Day box contest or your kiddo just wants to get super-creative, check out these artsy ideas.

Try Textures

Instead of sticking with one kind of paper, try a variety of different textures on the box. Wrap a shoe box in craft felt and add tissue paper hearts. Your child can get as creative as they want here. Explore different textures, asking them to collage together a covering that is soft, furry, fuzzy, smooth, lumpy and bumpy.

Tissues Flowers

Create an entire Valentine’s Day box that’s covered in flowers. Of course, not real flowers. Your child can craft their own faux flowers by cutting tissue paper into circles and crunching it up. Paint a shoe box a solid color and cover it with glue. Press the tissue flowers onto the glue and let the box dry before using.

Heart Garland

Your child can create a super-simple Valentine’s box, painting it or covering it with a solid color of paper. String paper hearts onto a pretty pink or red ribbon. Drape the heart garland around box, adding décor to the design.
