Saturday Morning Crafts!


The boys and I worked all morning on their crayon Valentine's cards, and I LOVE the way they turned out!  The best part is that we had a great time making them!

Time to get to work!
First we had to peel off ALL the wrappers...all 200 of them!  After about 3, I whipped out my craft precision razor and cut down the sides of the crayons while the boys ripped the paper off!
We then sorted them according to colors. What is it about the feel and smell of crayons that makes you want to be a kid again!?
We broke each crayon into 4 pieces:
We then filled up each heart, in the flexible mold, with the pieces, put them in the oven for about 15 minutes, and here is the result!
All packaged up and ready to go!
Have a great Saturday!!

Those are great! We did snowmen @ Christmas for my daughter's class & they were a hit. The craft knife is the way to go for removing the wrappers. :)
