Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and for parents, it can be a bit of a stressful day in the midst of school and the rest of life. Not only do we need want to plan a romantic time with our partners, but we also have to help our kids write out Valentine’s cards, contribute food for their class parties and in some cases, construct a box to hold said valentine’s cards. While the boxes on our list definitely aren’t quick and easy, they are pretty much guaranteed to be the cutest in the class!

1. Unicorn Valentine Card Box

Show me a little girl who doesn’t love unicorns and I’ll be shocked! There’s something so whimsical and lovable about a pony with a magic horn, and this Unicorn Valentine Card box is no exception. Glitter accents, cute ears, and bright horn and those cute eyes are all it takes to dress up an otherwise boring Valentine card box. Who’s making this this year?

2. Bumble Bee Valentine’s Box

Buzz on over to your craft room and grab the supplies for this adorable card holder! Made with an old plastic food container (I believe this one is from pretzels) that is covered in craft paper, then finished off with simple black plates to form wings! This is a great craft for your elementary-aged child to make on their own, or as a fun afternoon activity with your little ones.

5. Minecraft Valentine Box

While this box takes a little patience, it’s definitely perfect for the beginner or non-painter.
