Crayon Valentines


Loving Pinterest these days!  We made those crayon hearts that have been floating around the Pinterest boards and they came out so cute!!!  They were so simple to make and definitely worth the time.  Zayit had fun filling up the little heart molds with broken crayons and watching them melt in the oven.  It took a bit longer than his attention span could handle (20 minutes at 200 degrees) but he was super excited to pop them out of the mold after they cooled.  (I popped them out first and then put them back in just to make sure that they wouldn't break when he did it).

After all the hearts were made, I printed up little 4x4 cards on cardstock and hot glued the crayon hearts to the cards.  I'm excited that he has such cute little Valentines to hand out at school this week and there isn't any candy involved!

  1. Cute cards! We did ours at 250 for 15 minutes. Did you end up using Crayola or cheapos?

  2. We used Crayola. I read a couple of posts where people had a waxy residue on the surface of the crayons with cheapos - I didn't have the time to test it out and repeat if needed, so Crayola is what we used!
