Colorful Valentines

From Drop Box

We made Valentine's for Griffin's friends at school. We searched through all our crayons and picked out the broken ones (good separating practice for Math and fun for a 3 year old). Then we took off the paper and broke them into 1/2 inch or less pieces. We put them in the heart molds (Wilton Silicon mold) and baked them on 250 degrees for about 15 minutes (till they were melted).

 We pulled them out and let them cool. Popped them out of the mold and put them on cardstock that we stamped with Valentine's stamps. We added, "Have a colorful Valentine's Day." This is where I found the idea and she has a printable if you don't want to stamp.

The top of our hearts were raised, so I couldn't stick that side down. I guess I could have taken off the edges so it laid flat.

    What a wonderful way to recycle crayons Tricia. Your little son resembles his father as a little boy more and more each day. Happy Valentine's Day to the Asher family!

    Love you,
