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"

sicK and tired of being SIck and tiREd!





I haven't blogged for a while . This winter has me in the doldrums...I can't seem to shake this laryngitis bug. I get better and then it returns and I feel so run down...so I've been busy knitting!!!
I made the cutest little turtle named Tuck the Turtle. He hides his feet, tail and head into his shell. Super cute! Go here for the free pattern: Tuck The Turtle
Then I found in my stash two balls of some great Denim Sport Aran in Ivory Cream, which is a nice wool, cotton, acrylic blend, so I made myself some new socks and I started a pair for my dh. When life gives you lemons...knit!!!
