Why limit just one day to celebrating love with your family? Here’s a fun activity you can do with your kids in the lead up to Valentine’s Day.
What You’ll Need:
- A box
- Craft paper
- Drawing utensils
Find boxes to use for your mailboxes. Any type of box will do, such as a shoebox or an empty cereal box. (A tissue box would work great with its already built-in mail slot!) With paper, tissue, stickers, doilies, lace, ribbon, markers, paint—pretty much anything you want—decorate your mailbox. Don’t forget to put your name on it!
In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, write notes to each other about why you love each other. Fold up each note and put it in the appropriate mailbox. On Valentine’s Day, open your mailboxes and enjoy reading all the sweet things your family has written about each other.
For children who are learning to write, this is a great way to practice. Younger children can draw pictures instead of writing notes.
