We spent an afternoon making crayon hearts for Little Greek goddess’s classmates for Valentine’s Day. A friend of mine suggested the craft because she knows how I love to reuse and my aversion to sugar. We were so pleased at how they turned out… they’re adorable!
Here’s all the information in case we’ve inspired you to make this cute and practical Valentine’s craft:
- Crayon pieces (Tip: dip crayon pieces in warm water to make removing the paper a lot easier)
- Heart-shaped metal cookie or muffin tin
- Scrap paper
- Double-sided foam mounting tape
- Colored card stock (try to find card stock with recycled content)
Heat the oven to 250°.
Fill each mold with crayon pieces and bake until the crayons melt, about 10 to 15 minutes (Tip: Place a sheet pan under the crayons to catch any drips).
Once they’re cool, remove the hearts from the molds and smooth any rough edges by rubbing them on a piece of scrap paper.
You color my world
Valentine, you make my heart melt
