The kids made their Valentines this week and I may be biased, but I think they turned out super cute. Jack wanted to make his own instead of buying them (yay!), so we bought all the supplies and started cutting lots of hearts. I got him foam letter stickers so he could spell out each of his friends names (see what I did there? Stuck some leaning in there) Jack really enjoyed making each valentine unique for each one of his friends. We also made heart crayons, which we made for the first time last Valentines day and they were a huge hit. They are so simple and fun to make, we decided to do it again. Attach a cute little pun on the card, wrap them with adorable paper ,add a little ribbon, and your all set. I just love Valentines day!
Remy looks as though he just ran a marathon, sweating profusely but really he just took a bath. I felt I needed to clarify this in fear that “grown up Remy” would hate me for posting this picture. Also (future Remy), you never want to wear pants! Every time we dress you, you take them off, you silly boy.
- crayons with the paper peeled off (1- 120ct box makes about 20 hearts)
- heart shaped silicone mold
- First step- peel the crayons.The easiest way to do this is let the crayons sit in a bowl of water for an hour or so to let the papers loosen up.
- Next, break the crayons into about 3 pieces per crayon and arrange them in your heart molds. To get the best crayon thickness, use about 4 crayons per heart. (the more crayons you put in each heart, the thicker the crayon)
- Bake at 320 degrees for 15 minutes or until all the wax is melted.
- Let them sit on the counter for about 5 minutes.
- Place them in the freezer for 10 minutes.
- Then pop them out and they are ready to use or gift!
