Classroom Valentine Mailbox DIY

Does your little one need a box to collect their classroom Valentines?

Here is a simple Classroom Valentine Mailbox DIY that you can make with your little one. 

  1. Take the bottom of a shoebox and paint it or cover it with cardstock paper. 
  2. Measure the length of the shoe box. 
  3. Take a sheet of wrapping paper and trace the shoe box length with a pencil. Cut out the wrapping paper. 
  4. Using double-sided tape or glue attach the wrapping paper to the inside of the box so that it makes a dome shape over the box. 
  5. Cut a simple mailbox flag shape out of card stock or leftover shoe box and attach it with double-sided tape or glue. 
  6. Have your child write their name on the box and decorate it as their heart desires. We added vintage stamps and heart stickers to ours.
