I found a picture on pinterest.com showing colorful crayons melted into heart molds. I instantly loved it! I have old crayons, I have a silicone heart mold, I have some paper! I can do this! So, The Boy and I sat on the couch and unwrapped and broke the crayons while we watched Finding Bigfoot. It’s is great mother-son bonding time!
I cut the crayons into smaller pieces with the kitchen scissors and put a variety of colors in the molds.
I put them in the microwave for 10 minutes at 80% power. I checked them every 2 minutes.
I took them out and using a toothpick gently stirred to create a swirl designs. Let cool and attached to cardstock that says “Have A Great Valentine’s Day, For Crayon Out Loud!”. Hand print it or I zipped them through the printer.
I’m sure his class will love it! I have a pumpkin mold, too! Guess what I’ll be giving for Halloween! I bet candy molds would work too! Hummmm!
I believe I have tracked the original idea back to this blog:
Go visit her, super cute stuff!
