Fab. Valentine’s Day Box Ideas for Kids

February 2, 2015

An amazing teacher at our elementary school hosts a homemade Valentine’s box competition every year in his classroom.  It is so much fun to see what the kids come up with and how excited they get over their creations.  

I love it because it brings the homemade spirit back to the celebration.  I know everyone can run down to Target and pick up some darling products, but the kids don’t have to use any of their creativity or skills to grab something off the shelf.  These may not be as buttoned up, but they are far more fun.  

Encourage your child to make their own box this year.  Use these ideas as inspiration!
