What happens when you come up with a brilliant idea for a blog for Last Minute Valentine’s Boxes To Do the Night Before the Classroom Party, but you don’t have the time to execute it? You call on your coworkers and cross your fingers! I have to say the results are pretty amazing.
Do You Wanna Build A Snowman
Items Used: Frozen wrapping paper, toilet paper rolls, pink paper plates, 3 sizes of boxes, cotton balls, and various embellishments
One of the best ideas for a Valentine’s Box is to pick your child’s favorite movie or television show. Your kiddo will be more inclined to help, and is sure to appreciate your hard work at the end of the night. Wally’s Hint: Use photographs of you and your child to place on the characters to make it more personal.
Made From the Heart
Items Used: square box, pink and red tissue paper, crayons, wax paper, fishing line, and battery-operated votive candles
If you happen to be more of a Pinterest-y type of parent, why not combine several handmade projects into one fabulous box! Melted crayon wax paper hearts suspended by fishing line make up the sides of this square box. Topped off with tissue flowers and a flickering flameless candle inserted into the middle, this made from the heart box is sure to be envied.
