How to Make Valentines Day Boxes
Making Valentines Day Boxes is a Wonderful Activity to enjoy with the Kids and get them involved in the Occasion. The week before Valentines Day each year we all make ‘Valentines Day Boxes’ together as a Family. Everyone makes their own box and gets to decorate it how they wish. The kids love making things and it is so cute to see their Excitement as they carefully construct their boxes.
I have created a Step by Step Tutorial Below of How they were made.
Collect a Box for each Family Member to Create as their Own. They can be Cereal Boxes, Mailing Boxes or even Baby Wipes Boxes like I have used below.
Seal each of the Boxes with Tape.
Using a Stanley Knife cut a Slit in each box where Cards can be ”posted”.
Wrap the Valentines Day Boxes in Red Wrapping Paper, just like you would a Present.
Locate the Mailing Slit that you made early and cut another slit this time in the Wrapping Paper using a Stanley Knife. Fold back the edges of the Wrapping Paper and Secure with tape.
Repeat this Process for all of the Valentines Day Boxes.
Decorate your Boxes! We decorated our Valentines Day Boxes with White Hearts ensuring that our names were on the tops of the Boxes so everyone knew whose box belonged to whom. I have also created a FREE Printable Hearts Template with Red Hearts.
How to use your Valentines Day Boxes
Once everyone has created their Valentines Day Boxes they are to be left out on a Bench or Shelf where they are easily accessible. In the week leading up to Valentines Day you have to make a Card for everyone else in the family and post the card in their box before the Big Day! On Valentines Morning everyone gets to wake up and read all of the Cards that they have received.
