My little one and I love creating valentines for his classmates. This year we had a little trouble deciding which idea to pursue. Some of the ideas we had were great in theory but not very practical when having to be reproduced 15 times. That’s when we thought to make Confetti Heart Boxes Valentines.

Confetti Heart Boxes Valentines; a Non-Candy Valentine

In the end, we settled on this idea of making Confetti Heart Boxes Valentines because it was the most fun to make of the bunch and we could make enough for all his classmates. It has the added benefit of being a non-candy valentine that the kids love. Our Confetti Heart Boxes Valentines project is also great for fine motor and hand-strengthening practice.

Step 3: Making the Confetti for your Heart Boxes Valentines

While that’s drying, punch out several hearts in various colors.

We covered one of our hearts with glue and sprinkled it with red glitter.

Put all of the hearts inside the box.

My little one loves working with glitter which is why we chose that medium but this heart boxes Valentines project lends itself to many variations. You could cover the little boxes with colored tissue paper or even paint them. You could also fill the box with a sweet treat but my little boy sure enjoyed punching out those hearts and I think his friends will love their heart shaped confetti.
