The kids are enjoying making all sorts of Valentine’s Day boxes to collect cards- both for themselves and for their teachers! 

Materials

  • Flower box printable: FLOWERS
  • Flower card  printable: flower valentine card
  • Kleenex box
  • Paint
  • Craft sticks (popsicle, tongue depressors etc.)
  • Craft knife (to be used by an adult)
  • Glue gun/ glue or craft glue

We always find these items useful too:

SmockCraftTray

Directions

  • Remove the plastic liner from your kleenex box carefully.
  • Paint your tissue box with a few thin layers of paint, allowing drying in between.
  • Paint your stems (craft sticks) and allow them to dry.
  • Create your flowers- either drawing your own or using the printable.  You could paint or colour your flowers, print them on bright paper or cut them out.
  • Glue your flowers onto your craft sticks, along with your leaves.
  • Have an adult carefully cut slits in your tissue box to insert your flowers into your box.
  • You can make a matching card that opens for your classmates to go along with your box (see the printable).  Wouldn’t it be cute to attach them to a package of seeds!?
