Valentine Holder

3. Valentine Card Holder~ Give an empty tissue box a new purpose by adding paper and lots of glitz and glitter! I adore the added handle for easy carrying.

4. Carousel Horse Valentine Holder ~ This Carousel Horse Valentine holder is pure genius! It was constructed from an empty gallon ice cream container, scrapbook paper and embellishments.

Preschool Valentine Crafts

5. Paper Plate Heart Pocket~ This adorable heart-shaped pocket would be cute hanging on a door knob or filled with Valentine cards and treats.

6. Heart-Shaped Bucket ~ Old school meets modern day Valentine holder. The heart-shaped bucket was constructed from a painted manila folder, pipe cleaners, glue and construction paper. You will even learn a fun technique to ‘smoosh’ paint with wax paper.

Valentines Day Box

7. Lego Valentine Box ~ Lego lovers will adore this Valentine box. You can either spray paint a shoe box or cover it in paper.

8. Cereal Box Valentine Holder~ Recycle cereal boxes into these adorable Valentine holders. Children can decorate the boxes with paper, stickers and other embellishments.

Valentine Envelope

9. DIY Felt Valentine Envelopes {Homemade Valentine Boxes} ~Instead of a cardboard box that will be heavy to carry to and from school, make this cute DIY Felt Valentine Envelope for your child to collect all of his cards and treats from friends this Valentine’s Day. With a little hot glue and some scissors you can create a no-sew envelope of your own.

10. Love Letter Envelope {free template}~Have you thought about what you’re going to do for kids Valentines this year? Looking for something that has a little pizzazz? How about love letters? You could fill these little envelopes with just about anything.

Valentine Monster

11. Robot Monster Valentine Box ~The boys are gonna love this one! Spray paint an old box or cover it with construction paint. Cardboard heart feet and toilet paper dowels for the arms. The styrofoam googly eyes are fantastic.

12. Monster Valentine Box~ Originally designed as a tattle monster box where kids write down their tattle and feed it to the monster instead of tattling to mom. But, I think it would be a super cool Valentine box.

Valentine Mailbox

13. Valentine Mailbox Magnets {Valentine Boxes} ~There are lots of fun holiday ideas that use those cute metal mailboxes, and Valentines Day is just one of them. If you want to decorate your mailbox to use for valentines, but would like to reuse it for other holidays too, check out these cute Valentine Mailbox Magnets. Kelli decorates photo magnets of her kids and then uses them to create fun Valentine boxes. When the holiday is over, the magnets can come off and you can use the same technique for the next holiday.

14. Fabric Valentine Mailbox {free pattern} ~ Your preschooler may not be able to help that much with this fabric valentine mailbox, but it was too cute not to include it. Mom can sew it using the free pattern and your children can put it to good use. It’s so cute you can keep it out year-round so your child can have lots of play time with it. How cute would it be for Christmas and they can put their letter to santa in it?!
