Melted Crayon Hearts

Impress the other preschool moms by borrowing your neighbor's Valentine craft idea!

Last year I vowed I'd make Anthony help with his school Valentines, so his job was to break the crayons. 

He was very good at this part, but once that was done, he lost interest and left Mom to finish the job.

Put the broken crayons in the pan.

Melt the crayons in the oven at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Let them cool for at least 20 minutes and they should pop right out of the pan.

Cut out squares from red card stock (or red paper plates left over from Christmas). 

Write a message to your Valentines on each one. For example:
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Here is a crayon 
From me to you.
(This way the kids know what they are and don't try to eat them!)

Finally, tape a heart crayon to each red square. 

Give a Valentine to each of your friends at preschool, and have a very Happy Valentine's Day!
