This Valentine Advent Calendar is a fun way to countdown to the day of love! 

My kids LOVE counting down to holidays and occasions – Christmas, Halloween, even the days leading up to a vacation are celebrated by making paper chains around here! This Valentines Day Advent Box idea is one of their favorite countdowns! I fill each paper box with little treats leading up to Valentine’s Day – stickers, candies, coupons for later bedtimes etc. Each day is something different and it gives my kids 14 days of fun to look forward to! Here is how to make your own:

Valentine Advent Calendar


  • advent box printables (download here)
  • cardstock
  • scissors
  • tape or glue stick (I prefer double sided tape.)
  • fun treats – candies, stickers etc.
  • washi tapeoptional



  1. Download and print the advent boxes on cardstock. (The thicker the paper, the better!)
  2. Cut out along the outlines, then fold along the dashed lines.
  3. Once your box is formed, you can add glue or tape to the tabs to better secure it.
  4. Fill each box with a fun treat, then secure them with a piece of washi tape.
  5. Stack the boxes on top of each other and get ready to have some serious Valentine fun!!!


I love how much these tiny little boxes hold – WAY better than some of the smaller ideas I’ve seen that fit a small piece of candy. ‘Cause sometimes I don’t want to give candy, but the size of the advent is so limiting.


We hope you have a great Valentine’s Day!
