Valentine's Day Red Mailbox Super Glue CraftValentine's Day Shoebox Super Glue Craft








Over the years, Valentine’s Day has become more and more about consumption and less about crafting. In years past, kids and adults alike would hand make and exchange Valentines with loved ones. These days, however, most people simply buy Valentines featuring the latest cartoon characters. So if you’re looking for a great holiday-related craft to do with your kids this year, why not help them create their own Valentines mailboxes?

To start, you’ll need to get a mailbox. You can purchase a plastic mailbox at your local craft shop, or use a shoebox, both of which are pictured above. You’ll also need a few common craft supplies:Super Glue Tape

You can also use pipe cleaners, colored foam, crayons and your other favorite craft materials to add embellishments to your child’s mailbox. If you’re using a shoebox, you’ll need to cut a slot in the lid to make your mailbox. After that, use the Front Porch Treasures Glue Tape Dispenser to attach Sweethearts, construction paper hearts, and any other decorations your child wants. As an added bonus, you can both snack on the leftover candy while you work.

This fun activity can put the crafting back in Valentine’s Day and let your child work out his or her creative side. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even make your own Valentines while you’re at it. Happy Valentine’s Day!
