When I was younger I always remember Valentine’s Day being special at school. My favorite part is when we would make something fun to hold our cards from our classmates. I think this is a great activity for kids so I decided we need to make some easy Valentine’s mailboxes.
Our Valentine’s mailboxes are not only cute but they were also very inexpensive! The total project cost under $10 for both.
I found paper mache mailboxes at Hobby Lobby for $5.99 plus an additional 30 percent off – so I grabbed two! When we got home we painted them red, white and pink and let them dry overnight.
I cut a slit on the top of the mailbox so I can slide little love notes right in. I tried using scissors but it damaged the top a little so I switched to a bread knife. It worked great.
The kids had so much fun decorating their mailboxes but they loved finding things in them even more. Now I can leave sweet notes for my babes whenever I want.
