Valentines Day is upon us and like many other parents I had the task of preparing valentines for a class full of children. My alternative to the all so cute hard shape sucker that will inevitably be in his treat bag are heart-shaped crayons attached to an activity book. Creating your very own heart-shaped crayons for Valentine’s Day is super easy if I can do it you can do it. It’s so simple that your little ones can do the bulk of the work.
Simply remove the paper from the outside of the crayon, break it and place it inside the heart-shaped silicone pan that you purchased in preparation for this task. If you aren’t solely using primary colors I recommend you sort your crayons into color schemes.
Make sure to carefully remove the pan from the oven to avoid spillage. Once the crayons come out of the oven they will harden quickly so make sure to add your essential oil of choice right away. I chose lavender mostly because I love the scent and always have it on hand.
