30 Cool Valentines Boxes That Your Kid Will Want to Show Off at School

By Amanda Garrity of Good Housekeeping | Slide 1 of 31: You've always taught your kid that it's what's on the inside that counts — but sometimes (just sometimes), the outside deserves some love too. Take these valentines boxes, for example: While the messages on the Valentine's Day cards are packed with heart, the box that carries them to and from school makes a statement about your kid's personality, interests and ya know, Pokemon obsession. Paper and plastic bags will do the trick, but these valentines boxes are a fun way to let your kid's creativity shine. But before you let them take the reins, decide if you want to let them pick out a pre-made option online or make your own with craft supplies you already have at home. Even if you begrudgingly take the DIY route (kids can be convincing, can't they?), you can rest easy knowing that all of these homemade boxes are super simple to pull off, many of which even double as kid-friendly Valentine's Day crafts. Whatever they end up choosing — a cute heart-shaped decked out with pom-poms or a cardboard creation made to look like Harry Potter — they'll be just the right size to hold all of your their cards, candies, trinkets and other Valentine's Day treats.
