We started with a box and small condiment containers.
We used the containers with their lids on -- having the lids on made it easier to glue onto the box.
We laid out how we wanted them to look first. Then, glued them onto the box.
I took the box with containers attached outside and spray painted all of it blue. Blue is my son's favorite color, but of course you can buy and use any color you like. Let it dry and voila!! A pretty cool Valentine's Day mailbox for your child to take to school. We also cut a hole for the Valentine's to go in. My daughter also likes Legos, so if she wants one of these this year, she can pick her color. It'll either be pink or purple for her!
Hope you like it!
