Valentine Day Kids Crafts

Our Valentine Day kids crafts will help you create one of a kind mailboxes for your Valentine's Day cards. 

It is common that on Valentine's Day, all the classrooms will have the children hand out Valentine cards to one another (and sometimes some treats too!). 

We've created a cute mailbox for these cards out of a paper bag. 

This is a great paper valentine craft to do with the kids in the week or two leading up to Valentine Day.

We've also got a very cute "kissme" treat you can make to give with your cards. Learn How by Clicking Here! You can give all your friends and classmates a nice card with a little treat too!

Paper Bag Valentine Card Mailbox

Before you get all your cards ready to deliver, let's make your mailbox for Valentine's Day!

Craft Supplies:

  • Brown Paper Bag
  • Red and Pink paint
  • Paint brush
  • Markers
  • Pink construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Step #1:

Take the red paint and paint your bag red. 

Leave about 3 inches at the top unpainted for now.

Allow this to dry.

Step #2:

While the paper bag dries, take you pink construction paper.

Cut it into small squares and fold these squares in half.

Cut each into a half of a heart.

Make this in all different sizes. You will need enough to fill your bag on all sides.

Step #3:

Unfold all of your hearts.

On each one write Valentine sayings. You can use things like:

  • Be Mine
  • I love You
  • Hug Me
  • Happy Valentine's Day
  • UR GR8
  • I like you
  • You're sweet

Similar to the sayings you see on the little heart candies.

Step #4:

Once your paper bag is dry, fold the top area that you did not paint over the bag. 

Paint this area pink.

Step #5:

Add glue to the seam in the center of your heart.

Step #6

Glue it somewhere on the bag.

Repeat this for all of your heart cut outs until the bag is full.

Be sure to space them all over and put all the sizes in random places. Don't place all large hearts in one area and small in another.

Add your name to the top with a marker

and you are all set for the incoming mail on February 14th!
