Valentine Box Ideas for Kids


Every year we make a Valentine’s Day box for my son’s Valentine’s Day school party. Last year we took the simple route and used a white card box, and some football scrapbooking stickers. We had fun putting the football stickers all over the white box.

I thought it would make a great keepsake box until another child put his foot through the top of it. So much for that idea.

It was a simple, and fun box to make, and it looked really cool until it got stepped on.


This year he decided he wanted a camouflage army Valentine’s day box. I tried to explain to him camouflage and army are not exactly Valentine’s Day material, but he was set.


We used an old boot box, and some foil cake wrap I was saving to recycle. The scrapbook stickers worked so well last year, we decided to use them again this year.

These aren’t the most complicated boxes to make, and I’m sure they would not be a favorite for most little girls. So I found some other Valentine’s Day boxes to share withe you. Here are a couple more really cute boxes I found at Flickr.

One of my favorites is this Thomas the Tank Engine Valentine’s Day box. It’s too cute!

        Oh, my goodness! Your boxes are fabulous. My daughter is begging me to make the dog box for her to take to kindergarten, but I am not even sure where to start. How did you make the dog box? Any suggestions? My daughter is counting on me.

        well i made a animal and what i did is i put it as a plain box (regular size) and i gave it some legs but what they had to do to put the valentines in is you leave the front open so they put the valentines in there.

        Glad I could help

      Birthday ecards can also make for cute little gifts, in addition to something physical and also, if they will be sent to friends or relatives that you don’t meet so much they will be just the right thing on their own. Depending on the age of the recipient you may want to offer something according to his/her age and also something that will send the right message. Girls love sparks and things that shine while boys will be furthermore impressed by the action figures from their favorite animations or movies. Adolescent and older people will be able to receive something more mature, like a heartfelt message and other illustrations, but, many will still keep a sense of humor and will enjoy whatever they get. In conclusion, the ecards will make your life easier and will prove to be handy little gifts, in so many circumstances and for so many different people.Birthday ecards
