Melt Someone’s Heart With Crayons

Who doesn’t just love a new box of crayons and all of the promise that it holds? A fresh box makes my heart go a-pitter-pat. The creative possibilities are absolutely endless! Well, I ask you,  what does one do with all of the tattered and battered used little pieces once all of the creativity is done?

You make heart crayons of course!

Aren’t they precious? And they’re the perfect DIY gift for Valentine’s Day! Simple, creative, easy and fun! I just made them at work with the kiddos I supervise in the after school program and I knew that I had to share them with you! I snapped a few quick photos on my phone of the simple process…

First, peel the paper off of the crayons and then break the crayons into small pieces. Next, place the pieces into a non-stick, heart shaped pan (making sure not to over stuff) and bake in a pre-heated 350° oven.

Watch closely as the crayons melt (3-5 minutes depending on your oven) as soon as you see that they have completely melted,

carefully take the cookie sheet out of the oven and place on a flat surface in your freezer.

(Note: the metallic crayons didn’t melt, next time we’ll skip those colors.)

After about 5-7 minutes in the freezer they’ll be firm and ready to go!


Wasn’t that easy?

I just can’t think of a cuter way to say Happy Valentine’s Day.

A heart felt gift that will make anyone’s heart melt.
