Crayon Hearts

Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Fill each mold with assorted colors of crayon pieces (paper removed) and bake until the crayons melt, about 10 to 15 minutes. (Tip: Place a sheet pan under the crayons to catch any drips). Once they're cool, remove the hearts from the mold and smooth any rough edges by rubbing them on a piece of scrap paper or a steak knife. Use small pieces of foam tape to stick each heart to a 3-inch circle cut from card stock and add a message.

Suggested messages:

  • You color my world
  • Valentine, you make my heart melt
  • Have a happy Valentine's Day, for "crayon" out loud!

We made these with our children, so easy to make. It gets rid of all those broken old crayons. You can actually use any shape metal cookie or muffin tin our tins were heart shaped and about 1 1/2 inches across, but you can use any size you'd like, bigger or smaller. You can make solid colors or multi colored shapes. We not only made the Valentine cards for school, but also just used them as unusual shaped crayons.

I got the inspiration for these from this link: http://jas.familyfun.go.com/arts-and-crafts?page=CraftDisplay&craftid=11585
