Heart Crayons

While going through my kid's craft table, I noticed that we have A LOT of crayons....mainly broken crayons.  

In order to have some fun with our crayons, we decided to make new crayons.

This was a neat and really easy project for all of us to do together.

 Step 1:  Peal wrappers off of old crayons

Step 2:  Put broken pieces into shaped muffin tins (we used heart shaped muffin tins in honor of the upcoming love holiday)
Step 3:  Bake crayons at 350 degrees for about 7 minutes

Step 4:  Once the melted crayons have completely hardened and cooled off, pop them from the muffin tins.

Step 5:  Happy coloring!

I "heart" these! Mary Ann used to do this all the time with us when we were kids. Not sure if Pat even remembers! So fun!
