For this years valentine gift to my preschoolers I decided to make heart shaped crayons. All my kids like to color so I thought this would be a neat idea and would be something different for them to use at home!
I took crayons that I found around the school that were old, broken, or about to be thrown away. I took them home, peeled off the paper, cut them into small pieces using an old pair of scissors, put the crayon pieces in a heart shaped silicone mini muffin container, and placed them in the oven on a baking sheet at 275 degrees for about 15 mins. I took them out when they were completely melted. I checked on them 10 mins in and checked again every few minutes after that.
Once they were cool I took them out of the pan and put them into little baggies to give to the children! They loved them! 🙂
