Unicorn Valentine Box
Valentine’s cards are fun to make, but what do you do with all your little one’s cards that they collect from their friends?
I made this fun unicorn valentine box from a couple of paper plates and some extra construction paper we had laying around.
My daughter loves everything unicorn. Every. Thing. You could literally stick a unicorn horn on just about any creature or animal and it will be a guaranteed hit.
This is a fun crafts for the kiddo’s and my daughter had lots of fun making one with me. After we completed our Unicorn Valentine Boxes, we made each other a few cards and put them inside each other’s pouch.
What is a Valentine Box?
They are very popular in the US, as a way for children to bring an empty container to school which they can fill with Valentine’s cards and notes.
Valentines boxes are such a fun way to show your little one’s creativity! This Valentine card box combines with different elements and shapes that let them create a whimsical unicorn.
If they want to be really creative, they can combine both elements together! They are going to love the glittery pieces! You might even want to embellish with a bit of real glitter too. You can’t have too much glitter.
After Valentine’s Day I’m sure my daughter, Chloe will love to hang this unicorn in her room.
