Do you remember being in grade school and exchanging Valentine’s Day Cards with classmates? Those were great times, weren’t they? It was the perfect way to tell that special someone how you felt without risking embarrassment.
As a parent, I love picking out Valentine’s Day Cards with the kids. What I don’t care for is the disorganized mess that comes home from school on Valentine’s Day. You know, the gazillion cards that the kids bring home. It’s no surprise to find Valentine’s Day Cards tucked in the couch while decorating for fall! This year we made a Valentine’s Day Mailbox to keep those cards from finding themselves scattered throughout the house. They were super simple to make and we only used items from my Dollar Store Craft Basket!
Here’s What We Used:
- 5 4in x 6in Foam Sheets
- 2 Foam Sticks
- 1 Valentine’s Day Pick
- Duck Tape
Here’s How We Did It:
- Start by cutting 1 of the 5 foam sheets in half.
- Glue or Tape the whole pieces together to form an open ended box.
- Work the 2 halves into either side, making sure to secure both bottoms and sides with glue or tape.
- Glue or tape the flag of your choice (we used a Valentines Pick) to one of the foam sticks. Glue the foam sticks to both long sides of the mailbox.
You and/or your kids can decorate he mailbox however. I used Duck Tape for this project because I couldn’t find my tacky glue. It works, though because you can see where/how I attached the pieces!
