My students melt my heart!

I can’t wait to give my students their Valentine gifts tomorrow!  I found this idea on Pinterest and just couldn’t pass them up!  I started with about 100 crayons.  I took the wrappers off of them and broke them up into small pieces.
 Then I put them on a cutting board and chopped them into even smaller pieces.
 I purchased the heart mold from Walmart for about $4.00.
 Before placing the crayons in the oven, I had to preheat the oven to 240 degrees.  I baked the crayons for about 20 minutes.  You may want to cook it longer or shorter, depending on your oven.
 Once the crayons have melted, take them out of the oven and let them cool for at least an hour before removing them from the mold. 
 They came out very easily for me and the mold cleaned up nicely!
 To prepare the card, I used a cup as a tracer.  I used a flair pen to write the messages because I feel that it is more personal than a typed message.
 This is what the finished product looked like.  These are my daughter’s Valentines for her daycare friends but the Valentines for my students look exactly the same except they are signed by me!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
