Crayon Hearts

Those of us with kids have this!

Instead of throwing them in the garbage, we can re-use them to make crayon creations.  For Valentine's Day, we made crayon hearts.  I originally got the idea from Pinterest but I changed it around a little bit. Instead of just mixing all the crayon pieces together, we experimented with color combinations.  The results were awesome!

Supplies: muffin or cookie molds and old crayons (I used a silicone heart mold that I bought at Michaels but it is also available through Amazon)

Step 1:  Peel the crayons, break or cut them in little pieces, and separate them by colors (reds with reds, yellows with yellows, blues with blues, etc).

Step 2: Think about what color combinations would be cool such as purple with black; red, purple and pink; or yellow and green.  Place your color combination into the molds.

Ideally, you want to have dark and light colors in the mix.

Step 3:  Once all the molds are full, pop in the oven at 250 degrees for about 20 minutes.  Wait for them to dry and your crayon creation is complete!  You can now admire the cool marbling effect :o)
