Who loves Pinterest, raise your hands???
My daughter's babysitter is having a Valentine's party tomorrow, so I am sending over some treat bags for the kids and for Jenn. I saw this on Pinterest and knew I wanted to do it. I found a rubber heart mold at the dollar store. The kids have tons of crayons, so I was ready to go!
You can cut the crayons up with a knife, but we just started breaking them (which is easier). Any piece that was too big we cut in half so it would fit in the mold. I decided to make girl and boy colors. I would find all sorts of pink and red colors for the girls and then all sorts of blue for the boys. After seeing the crayons melted, I probably would have overflowed the crayons in the tin because the end products were thinner than I thought they would be, but they were really just fine.
I put them in an oven at 230 degrees for about 12 minutes. I looked in on them after ten minutes and realized they needed another couple of minutes.
Don't expect to be able to use your tin again. The crayons definitely ruined it, but it's a dollar, so I am fine throwing it away!
They do look like candy and they actually do color! Such a cute, easy and cheap gift!!
