Recycled Crayon Valentines + Printable

Ever wonder what to do with all those broken & half used crayons? Recycle them into fun shapes for a sugar free Valentine gift!

What you'll need:
Crayons
Heart shaped baking pan
3" bags (purchased from Michaels)
Stapler
Bag Toppers

Let's get started!

Set your oven to 200 degrees. Remove the paper wrappings and break up the crayons. Add them to the  molds and place in oven for 8-10 minutes.
Once all the crayons have melted, you'll get something like this. Next throw the mold in the freezer for a few minutes so the crayons can harden faster.

Pop them out of the mold & you've got yourself some super cute new crayons!

Blank versions of the bag toppers are available HERE!
Just print & have your little one sign their name. Add a couple crayons to the bag & attach the toppers. Easy peasy!

A great Valentine treat without any sugar involved!

    1. I wouldn't suggest using it for food. My pan had a waxy residue that wouldn't go away no matter how much I scrubbed it.
