Now that you and the kids have made all those great Valentine gifts to share with friends you’re going to need a a container for them.  The first week of February teachers usually have their students make a Valentine box to store all the Valentines they will be exchanging with each other.  We did this last year for my grandsons.  The box holds the Valentines they will be sharing with their classmates and will hold the ones they receive.

Here are some fun and creative boxes your kids can make.  There are some printables you can use too!  (To make the cute mailbox by Save the Home Mommy seen above click here)
