It’s that time of the year again when you’re in search of kids Valentine box ideas for your kid’s Valentine’s Day at school.
Preparing and choosing the right box can be a daunting task. Fortunately, I’ve been scouring the web for the best Valentine’s Day box for kids so you don’t have to.
There are plenty of ideas to choose from on this list of 25 Valentine boxes, varying from quick and easy boxes to cool ideas for boys.
If you already made a box this Valentine’s day, remember that there are always more Valentine’s day crafts for toddlers to make!
5 Easy Valentine Boxes
These first five items are simple boxes that require very little crafting skills. Most of them only require some painting and a little cutting.
1. Rainbow Valentine Box
There’s not a more straightforward box design than a rainbow. While this Valentine’s Day box by Little Hiccups requires a bit of cutting and preparation, which can be done by an adult, coloring the box should be left to the kids since it’s the funnest part.
Here are other rainbow crafts for kids to make during a rainy day.
2. LEGO Piece Valentine Box
I bet you’re happy that you kept that shoebox because Carefree Crafts found a way to repurpose it into a LEGO Valentine box for school.
While red and pink would be appropriate for Valentine’s Day, changing the color won’t remove the essence of this Valentine’s Day craft because classmates will ultimately fill it with Valentines.
3. Truck Box
First Palette shares a box made to look like a truck for Valentine’s Day that’s made mostly of repurposed materials. A box and three toilet paper rolls are all that’s required for this fun and creative box idea.
If you’ve got more toilet paper rolls at hand (which is very likely), then try these other toilet paper roll crafts with the kids!
4. Pink Koala Box
Hallmark teaches us how to create a cute koala very quickly, complete with furry ears and cute facial features. To make things faster and more convenient for you, they provided a template of the koala.

The next five Valentine box ideas involve the creative use of lesser known and recycled materials.
11. “Bee Mine” Valentine’s Day Box
I Heart Crafty Things presents an ultimate test for resourcefulness with this Valentine box. This project requires you to repurpose an oatmeal container for the bee’s body and use some paper doilies for its wings.
