Posting Time for Classroom Valentines

It's time again for kids to decorate boxes (shoe, oatmeal, cereal, etc.) and bags use for collecting their classroom Valentines cards and treats. Some schools have specific guidelines or just let the kids create them in class. This year, my daughter's second grade class was asked to bring in a decorated shoebox. Because she is very into electronics at the moment, she wanted hers to look like an ipod. Here's what it turned out to be:

Just for fun, I found some other ideas across the internet.

Family Fun came up with a giggle-inducing monster made from a tissue box. Open wide!

Boys or girls would love to have their name on this adorable puppy. The pattern can be found at DLTK.

Since bear hugs are a good thing to share for Valentine's, you might consider this happy little bear from Making Friends.

But my absolute favorite (so far) this year is the hardy pirate ship by My Party Bug. Can't you just imagine your little swashbuckler beaming with pride when carrying this into the classroom?

Whatever design they choose (even if it's stickers on a bag) Valentine's is a great chance for kids to show their friends they care. Have fun, and Happy Heart Day!


  1. I have to say that my little man would love the pirate ship. They are making their boxes in class. I'm sad.
