First thing to do is to get the crayons and molds. The molds I bought from Target. It is the silicone muffin pan $2.50 a piece. I bought the 120 pack of crayons and that gave me 24 valentines. You'll need to take the paper off the crayons before you begin.
I put the molds on a baking sheet for extra support. Once you have all the crayons stripped preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Separate the crayons by color if you choose to do so. I decided to do browns, grays (black and white went in this group), green/blues, orange/reds, and purple/pinks. Of course you can combine any colors you like together.
Then you'll want to break the crayons up into smaller pieces and put them in the molds. The more crayons you put in there the thicker it will get. I like to make sure a variety of the colors are on the bottom so that you have a good look when it is done.
Put the crayons in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until they are all melted. Be careful taking them out to make sure you don't slosh the liquid crayon around too much, there is no need to swirl them or mix them, I promise!
Megan and I printed out hearts on cardstock with the words "Color your heart out, Valentine" to make the actual valentine. Then we cut them out, and jazzed them up with some stickers and glitter glue.
Attach the crayons however you like. First we tried glue dots but those didn't work out so well. I am attaching it with hot glue. Double sided tape could also probably work well.
So there we have it Crayon Valentines. My daughter was so enthralled with them somehow she talked me into making her some because she didn't want to wait until valentines day to play with them. How could I say no? Hope you all enjoy, I know your kids will!
