We just found out last night that my 4th grader is exchanging Valentines at school and needs to bring a decorated box by Friday. We ran upstairs to the attic and looked at our wrapping paper selections. We happened to have yellow paper and decided to create a super easy Minions Valentines box for school. You don’t really need too much to create a fun valentines box for school, this one really just needs yellow wrapping paper. I bet you could make a smaller shoe box using yellow construction paper if you have that on hand and are in a hurry. Either way, my youngest and I were pretty proud of our Minions Valentines Box and he can’t wait to bring it to school. Make some Minions Snack mix for a fun Valentines Day Treat too. I am sure the kids would get a kick out of that.
Start by wrapping a shoe box tightly with yellow wrapping paper.
Cut out a large circle from white paper.
Using a grey marker, make an outline on the eye to represent the Minions Goggles.
Glue the eyeball onto the box and using black duct tape, make the google straps. A sharpie did not work well on our paper.
Draw out your mouth which will be the opening for the valentines. Cut it out carefully using a sharp scissors or craft knife. This is a parent’s job. We lined the mouth with more black duck tape to prevent the paper from ripping when you added the valentines.
You now have a super quick, but adorable Valentines box for school. The other kids are sure to be envious. Now to make some valentines for classmates. Minor details.
