I made a 'collection' of the ideas for valentine's day. It's a wide range of ideas, but you might find something you can use. Good luck!

My students (4th grade) make and decorate them at home - most use cereal boxes, kleenex boxes, or shoe boxes. On Valentine's Day we vote for the most creative box (one boy and one girl) and those students get a small prize.

shoe boxes

When I taught 5th grade, we had ours decorate shoe boxes at home to show a favorite book they've read. I gave them over a week to do it (including one weekend). They came out really cute! I gave a certificate for each one (funniest, brightest, scariest, etc...). I gave them a reading grade for it because it had to show a book - but you don't have to grade it.

You can do one ahead of time to show them - like using the book Holes. Cover it in brown paper (like a grocery bag) and jaggedly cut a narrow hole for the "slit". Use a dark brown crayon to shade the edge of the hole. Hot glue a spoon standing/leaning inside the hole (to look like a shovel). Use construction paper to cut out the letters H O L E S to glue on the top, and you can use the crayon to show other holes around the sides of the box. If you have a small lizard, you can glue that on the top as well. Easy to do, and shows the kids that it doesn't have to be extremely time-consuming.

We're making one out of a milk jug

All students bring in a clean, dry gallon milk jug with the labels removed.

I cut the top off, leaving the handle. I write their name on the front in cute lettering and we paint with acrylic paint.

These make a really nice, sturdy container!

It worked great last year and my kids are currently bringing in their jugs for this year's containers!
