Simple mail boxes (baskets) for your school Valentines Party! Only supplies you need are card stock, scissors and glue!
No need to collect tissue boxes or cereal boxes and cover them with paper. Yay!
Printable boxes that students can decorate and color. This set comes in an editable PowerPoint so you can print names right on the boxes, and a regular PDF (non-editable) if you don't have access to PowerPoint.
Directions with pictures included. :)
Question: Is this something my kids can do themselves?
Answer: It depends on how perfect you want them. If your goal is to teach kids cutting, folding and glueing skills, then YES, they can do this. Some will need more help than others. (I made them with 1st and 2nd graders.) It was a good experience showing them how to fold and follow directions.
1. Emphasize that they need to make sure the box is square when they glue. If they glue it in a v shape it won't work.
2. I used packing tape for the handles when the kids made them. There is a gap on the sides that the heart covers. When I made them myself, I could still use glue, but for the kid made ones it was just easier to use tape.
