February is here and so Valentine’s Day is next week! This is our first time celebrating Valentine’s Day at school so I figured I would make God the reason why we celebrate love! This is our second time repurposing crayons, the previous time was for Emma’s birthday party. You can check out how we made those here.
This time I bought a heart shaped silicone mold that was under $5. The crayons we had this time were already broken and so we repurposed them and giving them a second chance to draw. I am sure the kiddos at school will love them as much as my girls love theirs. We are gifting the crayons with a card attached which you can print out for free! I hope you enjoy it. And if you recreate these please show me or tag me.
Start by peeling the paper off
Make sure you prep your crayons by peeling all the paper off. Then you’ll want to break them or cut them into smaller pieces. Next you’ll want to place them evenly inside your silicone mold. Don’t worry about them sticking out of the silicone mold because they will melt.
Time to bake
Next you’ll want to bake your crayons for 10 minutes at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. You will see them melt evenly and blending together, but if you notice that they’re too low and needing more crayons. Gently place more crayons in the center and continue to bake until melted.
Once they’re melted you’ll take them out of the oven. Let them cool completely on the counter or the way I speed up the process is by placing them in the fridge. They take about another 10 minutes in the fridge, and then they are ready to be taken out of the mold. They easily pop out and look like brand new beautiful crayons!
