Things have been so crazy around here. Our schedule has been anything but productive. We’ve had sickness make its rounds through everyone, and we’ve also had snow day after snow day after snow day. Sawyer’s classroom is having a party next week in class so I thought it would be fun to make Valentine’s Drop Box for his friends to put all his little Valentine’s into.

Finding Dory and Nemo Valentine's Drop Box Craft

As always Sawyer participated in all the fun. This one required a bit more help from mom with the small pieces, but it was a good craft for him to practice details like lining pieces up correctly. Supplies for this are minimal and you likely already have all of them around the house already. Sawyer will be giving out handmade heart shaped Valentine’s, and his teachers are getting a fun heart-shaped animal card so I thought we’d follow our theme or fun heart shaped friends.

Supplies Needed for Finding Dory and Nemo Valentine’s Drop Box Craft:

  • Empty Kleenex Box
  • Construction paper
  • Glue or another type of adhesive (we used a tape runner)
  • Scissors,
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Black Marker

First, we covered the entire Kleenex box with light blue construction paper. To give it the ocean look we added some green seaweed leaves and a sandy bottom. We used a scrap piece to cover the top and cut the opening into a heart-shaped as well. This is where everyone will be sticking their Valentine’s in so make sure you cut the heart as wide as possible.

To make Dory and Nemo, you’ll need to prep the following supplies and shapes:

Dory was pretty simple to make. Blue heart, yellow fins.

Nemo needed a little more detail. This helped pull the craft together and make it instantly recognizable. For sold white stripes on construction paper, I thought using white out would be best. Add black edging to both fins. Don’t forget that one of Nemo’s fins is much smaller than the other.

Nemo should look like this when complete. Attach the fish on the sides of the box for a complete look.

On the back, we just duplicated Dory & Nemo so they could be seen from both sides. When it’s done it should look like this:
