Materials:

  • Crayon pieces
  • Heart-shaped metal cookie or muffin tin (our hearts are about 1 1/2 inches across)
  • Scrap paper
  • Double-sided foam mounting tape
  • Scissors
  • Colored card stock
  • Marker

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 250°.
  2. 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.
  3. Once they’re cool, remove the hearts from the molds and smooth any rough edges by rubbing them on a piece of scrap paper.
  4. Use small pieces of foam tape to stick each heart to a 3-inch circle cut from card stock.Suggested messages:
    You color my world
    Valentine, you make my heart melt
    Have a happy Valentine’s Day, for “crayon” out loud!
