What is a Valentine box?

I like to think of a Valentine Box as something that is easy for littles to make and craft and use for collecting their Valentines day cards and candies from friends, affirmation cards and more..

A simple and cute Valentine’s day boxes for school can be made easily with construction paper, markers, stickers and elmers glue!

How do you decorate a shoebox for Valentines Day?

Easy peasy!

Here are the steps we took to put together these simple and cool Valentines boxes for kids:

  • A recycled shoe box can absolutely be used but we tried out a recycled tissue box this time around. Same concept; In our opinion a tissue box is easier because of the premade hole at the top.

  • Cutout premade construction pieces so your LO can glue them onto their box.

  • I made sure to have one big piece for the bottom of the box, two long pieces and two short pieces for the sides, and one big pieces with a hole at the center for our top piece.

  • Then, use elmers glue to add to the construction pieces around the box.

  • Once, the pieces are glued well, start decorating!

  • We brought out stickers to decorate around the Valentines day boxes for kids.

  • Valentines day box decorating ideas can look like coloring, adding stickers, adding pom poms… to your cute valentines boxes for girls and boys.
