Valentine’s Day Box Craft Ideas for Kids

valentines-craft

Does your child still need to decorate their Valentine’s Day card box for a school holiday party? If they’re not sure where to start, check out these artsy ideas for crafty Valentine’s creations.

Pattern Play

Create a pattern-covered box using stripes, polka dots or holiday-themed hearts. Cut a slit (for the cards) at the top of an old shoe box. Cover the box with white, pink or red paper. Leave space or cut a second hole for the slit. Use markers, crayons, or tempera paints to add a playful pattern in Valentine’s colors. Add red and purple alternating stripes, dot the box with red, pink, and purple spots or create a pattern using red and pink hearts.

Animal Option

Turn the box into a furry friend with an animal theme. Cut a slit at the top of a shoe box and cover it with plain gift wrap. Use cut cardboard tubes and tape to add legs or a tail. Paint the tubes with temperas or cover them with paper. Add a face with a paper plate that your child attaches to the front of the box. They can draw the animal’s face onto the plate and add ‘fur’ with craft fur or torn tissue paper.

Collage Box

Your child can make an abstract artsy design with torn tissue paper. Tear red, pink, purple and white tissue into different sizes and shapes. Cut a slit at the top of a shoe box and have your child paint it with clear-drying school glue. Work in sections to stop the glue from drying quickly. Collage the paper onto the glue and add a second coat of the sticky stuff on top to seal in the tissue and give the box a sparkling shine.
