O and I finally finished making the Valentine's for her class today. The idea for these crayon heart Valentine's came from Family Fun.
First, we soaked the crayons in hot water. This was the best idea ever, and it worked beautifully. Last time we made number/letter crayons, we just peeled the paper off the crayons, and it was a painful nightmare.
We then broke the crayons into little pieces and put them into a heart silicone tray (I think it came from the dollar section of Target a few years ago).
I baked the crayons on 275 for 20 minutes, and let them cool and harden in the oven so that the colors wouldn't mix when I moved them. I cut out circles and wrote "You color my world!" on them. O wrote her friends' names on the backs of the cards. We attached the crayons to the cards using double sided foam tape.
O is very proud of her Valentines, so I hope that her friends will like them!
