Several weeks ago I bought a set of heart shaped silicone ice trays in the dollar spot at target. At the time I was not sure how I would use them but I thought they were cute and I would come up with something fun for them. I set them aside and basically forgot about them. Then I came across this post at the christian moms forums.
This was such a cute idea that I had to try it. So off started my adventure to make some heart shaped crayons. I did not have any old broken crayons, I am sure when baby bug gets older I will have all kinds of broken crayons to use for this, so I bought a cheap pack from the dollar store.
I took the wrappers off and broke them into small pieces. I mixed colors that I thought would look pretty together and layed them all out into the ice cube holder.
After I had the crayons all in place I stuck it in the preheated oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes. Set it out to cool.
Then out they popped and I have these cute little crayons. I am going to set babybug up in her highchair with a piece of paper and a few of these to color tonight, then I will be taking them to school with me in the morning to let my students use.
What kind of projects have you done for Valentines day this year?
