Valentines Chair Mailbox ( backpack) - A New Tradition


This Valentines day start a new tradition of sending mail to family members through out the month. Provide each family member with their own Valentin mailbox that hangs on their dinner table chair and ask family members to write, color or create notes of encouragement during the days that lead up to Valentines day and place them in each persons mailbox.

DIY Valentine Backpacks:


Items Needed:
*1 backpack per kid (cotton material.. not poly)... got mine at Joann's... but many craft stores have them... could even try value village or good will.
*1 Iron-on monogrammed letter (got mine at Joanns.. but most craft stores have them)
*Valentine foam stickers

Directions:
- Iron on the child's initial in middle
- decorate bag with Valentine foam stickers... that way after valentines you can take off the stickers and then they have a monogrammed backpack that they can use all year round. Great for the library... road trips... etc...
