Owl Valentine Mailbox

This is the first year my oldest daughter (in the 3rd grade) has had the chance to make her own Valentine's box to take to school for their Valentine exchange. In past years, the class has simply decorated a bag in class for Valentines. We went to Pinterest for some inspiration and found this cute owl pinata which Lou fell in love with. It was so easy to convert this idea to make her Valentine mailbox. She is in love with this little guy! I had to share because I'm in love with him, too.


She simply used a cereal box, crepe paper, patterned cardstock, and some googly eyes.  I especially love his heart-shaped ear tufts and feet. 

What fun Valentine's creations have your kids been doing?

  1. I like it a lot. I never made one so cute in elementary. I will have to save this idea until I have to start making them with my kids next year. They don't do this in the other states I have lived in. They were a big deal to me growing up. I think you both came up with a cute idea. Hope you keep posting more stuff you do. I am going to try again.
