This year we decided to do Valentine’s a little different. It’s Daniel’s first year in school, so he really didn’t know he NEEDED Spiderman Valentines from Target and lots and lots of chocolate, so I thought it’d be fun to help him have the most creative and fun Valentines in the class. After decorating his box, we began the task of creating swirly Valentine’s crayons.
First we went to Target and found a Valentine’s muffin tin. Then we soaked the wrappers off all our old, broken crayons and broke them up and put them in the muffin tin, which we had sprayed with nonstick coating.
We then melted the crayons for about 5 minutes in a 250 degree oven. Once they were cool, we dumped them out on wax paper to continue hardening.
I then printed up a message, “You Color My World” on the computer which Daniel glued to construction paper and added the names of his classmates and then attached each unique, swirly crayon to it with double-sided foam tape. Voila! Adorable, homemade Valentines!
