Valentine’s Day treat box


Valentine’s Day Treat Box

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days. Maybe it’s a silly holiday, but when I was growing up in the US, I loved giving and getting the little love notes from my classmates. In Australia (where we moved to) and in England (where we currently reside), it’s not really celebrated in schools, so you can’t buy those mini packaged valentines at the store. As a result, my sons and I have made it a tradition to make our own. Here’s a few examples of valentines we’ve made in the past.

smileThis year we’re doodling these candy cubes, and you can too. Just download this treat box template, decorate, cut out, fold and fill with candy to give to your sweeties. I recommend printing it out on heavier paper stock so that the box is strong enough to hold the goodies.

    cute idea! thanks for sharing with Fun Friday Favourites. I do agree that Valentines day is much more celebrated in US schools than here although the high school that my kids attended in AUS would sell and deliver a single red rose to a valentine of choice- anonomously if required.. I hated Valentines day…at school in South Africa…as I never ever received a card! I got my first after I got married from my husband! LOL

    That’s so fun. We worked on Valentines last week when the power was out from the snow storm. It was fun. We did Mad Lib Valentines.

  • Some nice fun there. I know we don’t do much on Valentine’s Day in Australia…unless the media stuff gets to us..but the notion of love is always a win/win as is sharing it with famlly. Denyse

  • Looks like a whole lot of fun.

  • What a great idea! I miss Valentines – I used to send cards to friends but life feels like it’s gotten too busy.

    Thanks for sharing with us at Photo Friday!

      Social media has killed a lot of the snail mail correspondence unfortunately!

    Very cute! I love Valentine’s day too. In Canada the kids always celebrate in schools… and I hope that doesn’t change!
