Heart Crayons – Preschool Valentine’s Day

We made super cute heart shaped crayons last night.

Here is what you need:

  • Crayons (we used old bits and pieces)
  • Heart mold (silicone works best)

Heart Mold for Melting Crayons

My one year old testing the molds.

Here is how you do it:

  • Preheat over to 250 degrees
  • Break up crayons and fill your heart molds
  • Place molds into oven for around 20 minutes or until the crayons melt
  • Let cool ( I let them cool overnight)
  • Pop out of mold (silicone molds makes this part easy)

    I did these with silicone in the microwave. 3 min on high, then set in the fridge for 15 min. Makes things go faster if you need a lot and only have one mold.
