Crayon Valentines

Avery and I decided to do something a little different for her class valentines this year.  We got our inspiration from her Daisy Girl Scout troop.  They had made Christmas ones at their December meeting, so we thought we'd do Valentine's Day ones!

Without further ado...Valentine Crayons....

We used a silicone baking mold that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  Take small pieces of crayons (small pieces are better because they'll melt easier) and fill the cup up about half way.  Bake at 250 - 300 degree oven until crayon bits are completely melted. will look like a watery mess, but trust me...once it cools, magic happens and they're fine.

Pop the crayons out of the silicone mold and repeat!  Repeat and repeat and repeat until you're all sick of messing with crayons!

Dear hubs had the suggestion of punching a heart out, stamping on it, and attaching it to the front of the crayon.  Great idea, dear we did it!  Heart punch is Creative Memories.  Stamp is from My Creative Time.  It's all attached with a glue dot.

Avery didn't want to just do pink and red, because you know...sometimes boys don't like pink and red.  So we got crazy!  There are green ones....yellow and orange ones.  We mixed colors, we used metallic crayons....we just had fun with it!  Be two crayons will be alike.

~kinda looks like a plate of cookies, doesn't it~

Hugs for you ~ Hugs for me
 The plan is to place these in a cello bag, add a tag to the top, have Avery write her name on it, and then pass them out as her classroom Valentines.  Hopefully if we get that done before this post goes live I will add a photo of the totally awesome and totally complete project.  :-)  If you're reading this, then that didn't happen before the post went live!

I hope you enjoyed this post.  This was a fun activity that I was able to do with my daughter.  She is 5 and starting to love crafting time with Mom!
