How to Make a Crayon Valentine
I grabbed this heart-shaped muffin form from Target last year in the dollar bins, but you can buy a heart shaped silicone mold online. You do want to make sure whatever you are using is oven safe. Some of the smaller heart shapes are intended for making ice cubes only.
I like to fill each heart shape with the equivalent of three full crayons broken into pieces.
This is what they look like before you pop them in the oven.
This is what they look like after you bake them for 15-20 minutes at 250°
Let them cool 100% before removing them from the muffin tin.
Look at how awesome these turned out.
So much fun! The kids are always so impressed.
And the cool part is, you have three different colors on one crayon.
And see, they really color.
Print out the printables. There is one printable done in boy colors and one in girl colors.
Have your kiddos fill out the to and from area on the cards.
Then cut them out and fold them in half.
Pop one crayon in a cello bag.
Fold the top of the cello bag over.
Place the folded printable over the cello bag and secure with one staple in the center of the printable.
Here is a shot of the back of the cards.
And here is the front.
Super simple and awesome!
These make the cutest Valentine Day cards! Such a great idea.
