Valentine Gift for the Kids-Heart Shaped Crayons!



Super easy, last minute valentine gift idea for the kids that's sugar free and costs under $5!
Supplies:
Box of old crayons or pick up a package at the dollar store.
1 heart shaped silicone mould(dollar store)
Cello bags and ribbon

Instructions:
Heat oven to 250 degrees F.

Peel all the paper off the crayons(I did this while watching tv)
Break crayons and place assorted colors in each section of the mould.
Place silicone mould on metal cookie sheet/pan.
Bake for 10 minutes until the crayons are melted. Carefully remove from oven and cool until solidified.


Place in cello bags and tie with a red ribbon.
Attach a card that reads:
"For Crayon Out Loud! Be my Valentine"
or
"You color my world, be my Valentine"

These are really wonderful Monica! I remember my Mom made some like these for my kids years ago but that was before silicone pans. I don't remember what she used but the silicone would sure be easier, wouldn't it? They loved coloring with them and I love this reminder! Thank you!...Nancy :o)
