Each year the kids in school are asked to decorate and bring a Valentine box for school Valentine swapping. I always dug out some old shoe box and covered it with construction paper hearts. 🙂 But this year as I was doing a little after Christmas shopping I got the idea to make a Valentine Box LOVE SHACK! Who says gingerbread houses are only for Christmas?!
Valentine Box for School
We picked up the Gingerbread House Kit for $3.00 on clearance, but you can still get them online. And we bought the bulk Valentine’s Day candy at our grocery store. Isn’t it pretty? I love candy.
My daughter and I had a great time decorating it. You can leave it as a fun holiday decoration (and treat) or you can leave the back half of the roof off so Valentines can be slipped right inside at school. I guarantee this will stand out among the sea of shoe boxes and your kids will have a GREAT time making (and eating) it!
