Valentine Box for Boys


Do any of the rest of you have kids that wait till 8:00 at night to tell you they have a project due the very next morning? Happens at our house waaaay more often than it should! Makes me want to beat people. Not really. Well maybe a little.

Last year on February 13th, my son informed me that he needed a Valentine box for his classroom party. We had to come up with something really fast with stuff we had laying around the house. When I searched for Valentine boxes online, most of the results were a little too pink, or frilly, or covered in hearts. Not so awesome for a boy.

But I did happen to come across a photo of a lego Valentine box. And this boy happens to love legos. I knew it was perfect. The photo I found didn’t link to any instructions, so I had to come up with my own. If you have a lego loving son who needs to bring a Valentine box to school, this would be perfect! Even if you find out at 8:00 the night before. :)

How to Make a Lego Valentine Box:
1-Find a shoe box (or other box).
2-Cut a hole in the top using an exacto knife.
3-Cut six paper cups in half (paper works better, but all we had on hand was styrofoam)
4-Hot glue the bottoms of the cups onto the lid of your box.
5-Spray paint the whole thing.

You are finished! Wasn’t that easy?

  1. Love this idea. Pinned it for when my little guys are in elementary school.

  2. I just stumbled on your site…I love it. We all have those moments we want to beat somebody. Most of us just don’t admit it! Do you have a subscribe by email option?

    • Haha! Yes Amy, I do have an e-mail subscription option. On the top right, just above my photo–just click the blue box with the envelope in it. Let me know if it doesn’t work for you.

    • I knew it was right in front of me, somewhere! Thanks, I got it!

  3. Love the idea! I have 5 boys, so I definitely appreciate this! Only my oldest had to make one this year and we’re almost done (yes, even I’m amazed :) But I’m definitely pinning this for the future.

    • Way to be done early! My week has been so insane that we were up past 10 last night just putting together the valentines for my boys’ classmates. :(

  4. What a great idea, Kara! My son doesn’t need a valentine box, but he does love legos – so I just might make him one to use for lego storage! Thanks!

  5. Cute! Valentines is such a hard holiday for boy stuff. It always seems that the girl ideas are 10 times more than boy ideas online anyways. Thanks for posting something for the boys.
