The boys and I made their class Valentines this year. I think I mentioned already I got our idea from Charlene over at CrazedParent. We melted down old crayons and made heart
(We used the same Michael's mold that Charlene did... well, not THE SAME one, but the same kind.)
Here is Sam putting the crayons into the mold.
The finished product!
The boys also decorated little bags to put the hearts into. We used generic, plain red and white paper treat bags.
The kids decorated them with heart doilies, heart shaped stickers and buttons, stamps and some glitter glue.
We filled them with the crayons, little pads of paper and Hershey's Kisses. Mommy helped finishe them off with tags and bows.
It was a great project for the kids. It did take us several sessions to complete, but it was lots of fun. And I think they turned out really cute! Each one was unique!
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
