How to Make Heart Crayons
1. Soak crayons in warm warm and the labels will easily peel off.
Let the crayons dry or pat dry.
2. Sort crayons into colored piles (or similar hues).
You can also mix colors but we personally like to keep the colors sorted so when coloring with the finished hearts kids will know what color they are using.
Make sure the crayon pieces are broken into small pieces that will fit into your heart mold.
3. Place the pieces of crayon into the heart mold.
4. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the filled mold onto a cookie sheet for stability.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until crayons are fully melted. Adults must do this part.
6. Let the crayons cool.
Let crayons cool completely before popping them out of the mold.
7. Add to Valentines.
Once cooled, pop out and either glue or tape onto the printable Valentine.
You can use washi tape and add a small strip of tape over the heart, hot glue, or a glue dot to add the crayon to the Valentine’s cards.
Make sure you review the Print Preview before printing. Every printer is different so make sure you select “Print to Fit to Size” or look at the printer Scale Features (you can print at 90% scale) in your printer settings so that it does not print cut off if you are having issues.
