Be My Valentine

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

After music class this morning Kirby & I decided to get a jump start on Valentines Day festivities. She has been asking me all week if we could do a Valentines craft, so I figured we might as well kill two birds with one stone & make a craft that could be used as Valentines for her little Mother's Day Out classmates (she goes Tuesday, Thursday 9-2pm).

We bought the biggest package of crayons we could find & a silicone heart shaped baking trey & that's all you need. First, Kirby helped me sort the crayons by color into bowls. Then we peeled all of the paper off & snapped the crayons into fourths. The easiest way I found was to peel the crayons first & then I passed them to Kirby & she loved snapping them into pieces ( I went back & broke her halves into fourths afterwards).

Once that part was finished we filled each heart with a handful of crayon pieces, Kirby loved picking which color she was going to do next. This box of 96 crayons (I believe) made 2 dozen hearts, we are making the second dozen once Kirby gets up from her nap.

Then we popped them into the oven at 230 degrees for 15-20 minutes (until crayons melted fully) and set them out to cool for about 20 minutes & boom they were ready & super easy to pop out, zero mess.

Now I just need to come up with a cute way to package them so she can bring them with her to school next week. Suggestions? I knew I wanted to do something other than candy for her
Valentine's & I know she would be thrilled to receive one herself, so I think it will be perfect. For now we have an extra dozen colorful crayons for her to color with all afternoon!
