Our kids love making Valentine boxes and we wanted to share our collection of them for you to make for at home or at school!  Writing Valentine’s Day cards is a great way to learn how to write other children’s names and one’s own.  It also allows you to spread kindness which is definitely something we are big fans of!  Our Valentine Box ideas often start out with materials that you have at home because we love making recycled crafts.  Our base is usually a Kleenex (tissue) box as that opening is easy to start with.  If you give our boxes a try we’d love to see them on Instagram or if you have Valentine box ideas, we are always delighted to see other people’s creativity too- please tag us!  (https://www.instagram.com/make_it_your_own_/)
