Looking for an easy and fun Valentine for your kids to give to their friends? Having three girls, so far apart in age, holidays like this can get expensive. So, this year, my girls worked together to find the perfect Valentine that’s great for all ages.  What they came up with is absolutely adorable and as perfect for Kindergarten as it is for Middle School. A small container of candy, a shovel spoon, and a little note that says “I totally dig you.”

We purchased all of the supplies on Amazon (I’ve linked those below for your convenience), except for the Valentine candy and the things we already had in the house. In total, each Valentine wound up costing approx. $1 each. I’ve also created a free printable for your convenience. 

The girls had a blast at the kitchen table, putting each box together for their friends and they can’t wait to bring them to school on Valentine’s Day and wow them with what they’ve created.

Supplies Needed for I totally dig you Valentine

You’ll need:

Our Free Printable Label Sheet or Label Image
Clear Pillow Boxes
Round Labels
Disposable Shovel Spoons
Red Construction Paper
Valentine’s Candy
Tape
Scissors
String or Ribbon
Hole Punch

Directions:

  1. Take your pillow boxes and seal one side with a small piece of tape to make sure they stay closed.
  2. Fill the boxes with candy and seal the top with another small piece of tape.
  3. Secure the shovel to the front, center of the box with a small piece of tape.
  4. Cut out 2″ circles from the red construction paper.
  5. Download Our Free Printable Label Sheet or Label Image. If you have Avery 5293 1 2/3″ labels, you can print our label sheet and they should line up perfectly. If you have any other sized labels, you’ll want to download the label image, find the template from the label manufacturer and input the image into their template before you print. 
  6. Write your child’s name on the provided line.
  7. Peel a label and attach it to the center of each construction paper circle.
  8. Punch a hole in the top of each circle construction paper/label. I used a heart hole punch, but you can use a circle as well.
  9. Tie a piece of string around the box (at the center of the shovel).
  10. Thread the construction paper/label circle through the string and tie it again to form a knot. Then tie into a bow.
