My kids always get excited to make their own boxes to keep classroom valentines in, and here are two options we put together to use this year. Grab some craft supplies and an empty shoebox, cereal box, or tissue box and get creating!

- Wrap empty tissue box using duct tape.
- Cut “teeth” strips using white craft foam and glue them to the top and bottom inside of the box opening.
- Glue on two egg carton pieces for “eyes” on top of the box.
- Glue googly eyes in middle.
- Glue toilet paper roll “legs” on the bottom of box along with “feet” shaped craft foam or paper.

These options are both super cute and easy to make! Don’t you love creating things like this with the kids!? So FUN. ✂
Feel free to improvise from these ideas and use supplies you may already have on hand. Such a great way to re-purpose empty boxes!

Cute ideas. But I miss the days when decorating your Valentine’s box was much less involved. 😕 Some construction hearts and maybe some glitter. And the kids did all the work.
I totally think it can be like that too! Love it all ❤️
These are super cute. Thanks!!😍
These are great, thank you! My son needs to decorate one this weekend. I can’t wait to show him these ideas!
Very cute! We’re doing the free home depot builder heart box tomorrow.
Oh that sounds like fun!
This is a he best craft ever😄😄
Oh thanks! So nice.
Thank you so much for the printable templates! This is such a cute idea! Love it!
You’re so welcome!
Last year we caught the kits on sale at michaels. My daughter loved creating her unicorn box and it was pretty inexpensive.
