Ta da! Her Valentine box in all its glory. And don't forget to notice the house shoes. You can't have a "Valentine box house shoe decorating party" without the house shoes.
I was allowed to help cover the box in paper and to make the little hearts on the side, but that was it! Bummer for me. I love this kind of thing. I should have made my own box just for fun.
Aren't these little elephants on the side adorable!? Target! A pack of them for $5.00! And easy for Addison to put together. Love it!
I love them a ton. :)
Elephants on two sides and stickers on the other two sides, exactly the way my girl wanted it.
Here is the fun little friend I made for Ellie's box two years ago. SO easy to make.
And so fun that Ellie let her mom participate! Although I have to say that when it comes to regular homework - math, reading, spelling - I'm starting to appreciate Addie's "do it myself" personality more and more.
I know it's a bit early to be turning in Valentine boxes at school, but in Kindergarten at our school they do the cutest mail unit. They turn in their boxes and cards early and learn all about sorting and delivering the mail. Addison has the same teacher Ellie did and it has been so fun re-living everything again this year.
When Ellie was in Kindergarten my dad made this fun mail truck for the class to deliver their mail in and Addison can't wait to use it! I know. Coolest grandpa ever, right? We think so. :)
Happy Valentine box making everyone! Wear your house shoes if you work on one with your kids this year. It just seemed to make something good even better.
