Day 2: Make & Decorate Valentine Boxes

When Alex woke up this morning, the first thing he did was come into the kitchen to check on the Valentine Countdown Calendar . . . to see if there was anything in the little heart marked #2.

We waited until after all their homework was completed and supper had been consumed before we started on the Valentine boxes.  I cheated a little and bought the boxes at the Dollar Tree.  I had initially considered decorating shoe boxes like I did as a child, but decided to use the ones at the dollar store instead. . . so much easier for this Valentine Fairy!  :)

Stickers came with the boxes . . . I bought some glitter glue sticks too . . .

The finished Valentine boxes were beautiful.  Zach said that his was like abstract art . . .
