DIY Valentines for School

Easy DIY Valentines for School

I love participating in all the fun DIY Valentine classroom activities each year. I recall that Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays in grade school. That week, we would make “mailboxes” (like this cute Panda one)out of old shoe boxes to prepare for all the Valentine’s Day goodies coming our way. Even though I knew that every kid gave Valentines to everyone in the class.  I still got excited to receive one from the boy I thought was cute that week.

All of these are super cute, creative, and inexpensive.  You can get some inspiration from the plastic toy bins or the candy aisle at your local party store.  Add a catchy phrase and voila! Instant valentine!
