I know that it's only September and I didn't even start school yet but does anyone have any cute ideas for Valentine's Day Card Holders besides Shoeboxes, Tissue Boxes, or Bags. Has anyone ever used cereal boxes?

My kiddos are 3 and 4's. I cut out large hearts (placemat size) and let them decorate with doilies, stickers etc. I like to laminate them, then we place two (back to back) and hole punch around them and let the kids lace them wtih yarn, leaving the top open, like a giant envelope. We then hang them on the back of chairs for valentine distribution.

Milk Jug Valentine's Card Holders

Last year we used gallon milk jugs for Valentine's Day Card holders. Just cut down the front and around back, but we left the handles. They were bigger than the envelopes that I had used before and the kids were able to carry them without loosing everything!! Plus it was a great way to reuse the many milk jugs that we generate each week!!

Mail truck Valentine holder

This appears to be two years late, but I found a cute holder on line made from white drawing paper 12 x 18 folded in half, and the corner cut off to create the body of a mail truck. (cut on the folded side). Where you cut the corner is where you would insert the valentine.
Each student should cut a circle out of black construction paper. I usually have the students trace a margarine cup to make over sized tires. Cut the black circle in half (symmetry lesson!) and lift the fold up and glue the flat edge of the semi-circle to the inside flat edge creating tires. Glue around the open edges, EXCEPT FOR THE SLANT LINE CUT OF THE CORNER.

Take two 12" long and 1/4 inch wide strip of blue const. paper and red const. paper and glue in the middle of the paper to resemble stripes (mail truck-red white and blue) going from the back of the vehicle to the front right underneath the slant.

Draw with a black crayon a window and door area, using the slanted cut of the paper as the windshield of the vehicle. Door line may be drawn over the red and blue lines.

Student may draw a driver and steering wheel of their "Valentine mail truck.

I've done milk jugs too -- if you cut them right -- the front (away from the handle) will look like the top of a heart. I had kids decorate paper hearts -- and had their name and picture on it and taped it to the jug. Hope that makes sense! I will say that if you have bus kids -- they do NOT fit will in backpacks!
