Easy Valentine Mailboxes- A fun craft for kids

This month Lowes challenged their creative team members with the theme “Will You Be My Valentine?” I decided I wanted to find something simple for my preschoolers to create their easy Valentine Mailboxes when we exchange cards as a class. Last week while browsing the paint section, these darling red buckets caught my eye:

For less than $2 a piece, I bought one for each of my students.

When I got home, I used some puff paint to write their names on them- pink for the girls, blue for the boys.

I also picked up some Valentine stickers from the dollar store.

I gave each student half a sheet of stickers and told them to go crazy decorating.

And that is it! :)

Simple, fun and mess free! I’m looking forward to our Valentine exchange this year with mailboxes that stay open and don’t require bending cards to get them to fit inside. These buckets are perfect!
