Crayon Heart Valentines

A simple and cute Valentine’s card idea is the heart shaped crayon. These simple Crayon Heart Valentines take some pre-planning because you need to gather the color crayons you want to use or you can simply keep all of your kids broken crayons to create your hearts in multi-colors. You will need a heart shaped mold and at least enough broken crayons that equal 2 packages or two packages of crayons if you are purchasing them new. These two packages of crayons will make 36 to 40 heart shaped crayons, depending on how thick you make them. This would also be a great activity to do for party favors for those special birthdays!
