I wanted to share this fun Valentine’s Day project as a way to involve families in your classroom! These Valentine’s Day family box projects are always a class favorite. Keep reading for lots of examples and FREE send home directions.
February is one of my FAVORITE months because of this amazing Valentine’s Box Family Project that we do each year. So simple (for the teacher), just send home the free letter, encourage families to make a box at home, and give them a date to have them sent in by.
- Have them due a couple days before your party so that way you can make boxes with any kids who may not have made one.
- Target and Walmart sell box kits now. Look in the Valentine’s Day section. I always pick up a few to use with the kids who did not make one at home.
- Make a sample and show your students how it has an opening to put the valentines and treats in and a way to get them back out (if that opening is too small to get stuff back out).
Here are some favorite boxes from over the years.
Scroll down for the free download to do this project with your class!
This project is FREE! Just print the letter, send home, and the boxes will start rolling in! The letter has all the directions and sample photos for you, but how fun would it be to show your students this list too!
