Happy Valentine’s Day (almost).  Today we’re making a quick and easy project for kids to use for for Valentine’s day but really could be used for any holiday, or every day just for fun.  We made these for Easter here.  Valentine’s Crayons – they’re affordable and simple to make. Let’s get started.


Crayons – 3 or 4 boxes (2/$1 at Dollar Store)
Silicone Heart Mold


Remove crayon wrappers and break the crayons into small pieces.  I separated the crayon pieces by color so I could see what colors I had to work with and how many of each color.

Fill heart molds to just overflowing with a mixture of crayon colors.

Bake the molds on 275 for 10 minutes.  Watch the molds at this point for the next five minutes.  The crayon wax will start to melt and begin mixing together but the colors should be separately visible – not a big brown mess.

Allow the crayons to cool in the molds and harden for about an hour.  Remove from mold and enjoy Valentine’s Crayons – Happy Valentine’s Day!
