Cute Crayon Valentine's Craft for Kids
Valentine's Day is around the corner. It's a time for cute cards and sweet treats, and celebrating friendship and love. My family keeps it low key for this holiday by just enjoying a nice dinner and a movie together. However, my son and I love creating our own cute crafts. We like to think outside the box and do something completely creative and fun.
This year, we decided to try our hand at making our own cute crayons. We have a Crayola Crayon Maker, but that only allows us to be creative with color combinations. I have a Valentine's Day themed cookie sheet that collects dust in the cupboard, so we decided to make cute crayon valentines this year. If you're a parent, chances are you have a box of old, broken crayons sitting around in your house. We certainly do. Who throws away crayons? No one. You collect them in an old box or bucket and use them to color.
This is a fun, simple craft that allows you to get creative with color combinations and shapes. All you need are old crayons and a mold. These cute crayons would be a perfect alternative to the traditional Valentine's Day cards and candy that you buy at the store for your child's classroom party. Pair them with a little notepad or a few sheets of paper and you have a unique gift that all the kids will love!

How to Make Crayon Hearts

4. Place your cookie sheet mold in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the crayons have fully melted.
5. Once the crayons have melted completely, pull the cookie sheet mold out of the oven. Allow the wax to cool and harden.
6. Pop the mold in the freezer for 20 minutes or so to speed up the hardening process.
