Jack's Valentine party at school is on Monday, so this weekend I figured I better buckle down and knock out the Valentines for his class. I wanted to make them myself (becuase it's just more fun that way!), and after scouring Pinterest for ideas, these crayon hearts from WhipperBerry caught my eye. I remembered my mom helping us make big, mixed up crayons in muffin cups from all our broken crayons when we were little, so I thought these would be fun for a group of 2-3 yr olds. We haven't been using crayons long enough to have the vast collection of nubs that we would need to make enough of them, so I went ahead and bought some new ones. I followed WhipperBerry's instructions using the same silicone heart mold and baking temp/time, and they came out perfect. I haven't yet decided how I'm going to package them up, though. I've got to leave a little fun for the last minute, right?
I couldn't resist taking this pic after I peeled off all the wrappers. Something about new crayons arranged like this makes the artist in me very happy. :)
