So I gave my four year old boy a box , a blob of red paint , and a piece of bubble wrap. I personally like the side of the box (the top picture) where it is just dabbed on best. He got a pretty all over cover going though and had fun doing it. Painting with the bubble wrap pretty much went like if using a sponge. He just dabbed it up and down getting a different effect.
Then It was Moms turn. I cut two holes in the top side of the box and added a piece of rope for a handle. You could also use ribbon or string. Then I had some Washi road tape (we love the stuff) it can be purchased for around $3 a roll if you are in the US on Etsy. We used four pieces of tape and did a pattern on the box (see photo) . I took a black sharpie and cut out a rectangle to insert Valentines and I hot glued 2 matchbox cars from our toy pile onto the road.
I took my sharpie and put "Wheel You Be My Valentine" as you can see I do not have pretty handwriting =) I got the saying from these really super cute Valentine's "I Wheelie Like you" that also have cars from over at Thirty Handmade Days . Love that blog!
