I’m proud of this year’s Valentines, so I’m sharing the instructions with you.
Buy the heart-shaped ice-cube trays from the dollar bin at Target. Buy some light-colored cardstock while you’re there, too.
Tear the wrapping off any broken or light-colored crayons, break the crayons up into the heart trays, then stick it in the oven at 225 til the crayons melt together. This is surprisingly fun to do.
Then use duct tape or foam adhesive tape to attach your multicolored heart crayons to the card.
Voila: A cute, gender-neutral, non-corn-syrupy, useful, cheerful Valentine easy to make in large batches for the whole class.
Thanks to The Long Thread for the idea, and more DIY Valentine’s ideas here.
