Color Your Heart Out

Leah had a little Valentine's Day celebration at her preschool this and all the kids brought Valentines for each of their school friends.  I knew there would be a lot of candy, so we opted for a non-candy version.  We decided to make heart-shaped crayons!

The only supplies you need are a silicone heart mold, white card stock, and LOTS of crayons!  I had a lunch box full of broken and peeled crayons by Leah, so that wasn't an issue for us.
Leah had fun helping me break and peel the crayons.
And we filled each of the molds with the pieces.  I tried to get a rainbow of colors in each one.
Then we placed them in the oven at 400 degrees for 12 minutes and let them cool for at least an hour.  Once they've cooled they pop right out.

I found these adorable free printables here and printed them on white card stock.

Leah got a lot of practice writing her name and signed all the cards!  Here is the final product:

Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day with your loved ones!
