    THEN PASTE THOSE LITTLE HEART SHAPED CANDIES THAT SAY BE MINE, HAPPY V-DAY. ALL OVER THE BOX

    A Shoe Box
    Cover it in red or pink paper. Have the kids color some hearts with crayons and makers, cut them out and paste them to the box.

    Paper Bag
    Get colored (red, pink, white) paper bags (or regualar brown ones). Have the kids colors and decorate them. Again, provide a ditto with hearts and other decorations. Let the kids color and paste them on.

    These are the cheaper ideas, but they work well and let the kids be creative.

    This is what I did when I was in 4th grade:

    Stuff you need:
    -shoe box
    -knife
    -red, pink, and purple colored paper
    -pencil
    -scissors
    -glue
    -water
    -dish
    -paint brush

    Instructions:
    1. Take the lid off the shoe box and use the knife to cut a small slit in there. Make sure it is big enough to fit in Valentine Cards. (Parents should cut it, not the kid!)
    2. take some water and glue and mix it in the dish until it is about the consistency of paint.
    3. use the pencil to draw hearts on the colored paper, and cut out with scissors
    4. use the paint brush to brush the glue mixture on the top of the lid
    5. randomly put the paper hearts on it. Allow to dry.
    6. repeat with all sides except the bottom (of course).

    have them bring shoe boxes with the lid and have them decorate them with red paper and they could put whatever they want on them. Have them cut a slot in the lid so people can put valentines in. For boys, let them bring superman or transformers stickers and have the girls bring in whatever they want to put on their box.

    A few years ago, we made fabric covered boxes. like a shoe box and we used glue in an aerosol can. Then we attached braiding with a hot glue gun and bought a 10 cent thin wooden letter – the child’s first initial. We painted it with acrylics and hot glued it to the top.

    They have lasted for YEARS. Each child got to pick out their favorite fabric. My son’s is Darth Vader…LOL.

    I am not a crafty person. Not at all. No talent, I promise. But these were really easy and the time I’ve saved not having to do a new box each year really is awesome.
