Tips to Make Pokemon Valentines Box

  • First, click here to download the little neck scruff and eyes–all the details you need to give your Charmander life.
  • I love this Pokemon craft for Valentines. But the thing is that, it’s more than just a craft. I love the activity of working together to have made this with my kiddo. So easy, but we had a great time! So, let the kiddo participate–heck, let them lead the project. You’ll both have a blast.
  • Second, grab some nesting boxes you’ve got laying around from Christmas or click here to grab the cheapest (money-wise, they still look pretty sturdy) boxes I could find.
  • Next, don’t overthink this. I know, I know, but this isn’t the Mona Lisa here, you’re just making a Pokemon Valentines mailbox. So, do your best to paint your box brown, or cover it with kraft paper, whatever is easiest for you, then paste on the decorations. You do not have to be a perfectionist.
  • Cut a hole in the top somewhere. I didn’t get that far before I was so excited to snap pictures, but that’s kind of the point for a Valentines mailbox, right?! So, be sure to cut that hole in the top. I’m thinking 1-inch by 3-inches should be adequate.
