Crayon Valentine's from Pinterest!

I saw so many cute ideas for Valentine's Day on Pinterest but I decided to make crayon hearts.  Annabelle and I worked very hard on them.  It takes a lot of work to peel all of those crayons.  My fingers hurt me for days but in the end, they are too cute.  I hope the kids in her class like them because Mark says that they won't.  I just have to prove him wrong!

Peeling and peeling and peeling.

This was just one batch, we ended up making enough for her Kindergarten class and her ballet class.  We needed to make 39 valentine's so it took a lot of old crayons.

Break up the crayons and put into a silicone mold.

270 degrees for about 20 minutes

Have a Colorful Valentine's Day!
I don't know why the picture is turned but it won't straighten out.  You get the idea though.

Overall, I'm happy with the way they turned out.  Annabelle seems happy too.  Now we need to bundle them all up and send them into school.


  1. That is very cool Jaime....I think they will be liked by all.

  2. This is so fun! I almost bought some in the dollar section at target to do the same thing! W is a little young for it though.

    A seems to have loved them!
