The Most Colorful Valentine’s Day
If your not sure what to do with all those old crayons your child has in their room, well here’s the perfect idea. Find a heart shaped cookie or cupcake pan. Place the old crayons in the hearts, make sure you break up into small pieces. Bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes and then take out. If your using a cookie or cupcake pan you might want to think about lightly greasing the wells. After cooling down you are ready to assemble your project. You can find the downloadable PDF that you can print out on white card stock at The Long Thread http://thelongthread.com/?p=5646 Not only will you and your child have a fun day doing this craft but it’s a great way to recycle those old crayons.
