Valentine's Day gifts for the Firsties!

As many of my ideas do, I took this idea from Pinterest and added my own twist!

You make life colorful Valentine!
We have been collecting broken crayons in my room since the beginning of the year, so over the weekend I snuck them out of the room for our little gift!
Let the peeling begin.
A few years ago, I found this silicone heart muffin pan. The hearts were bigger than the example but with the bigger the better in First grade!
 I broke the crayons and added them into the hearts and then the baking began. 
230 degrees for 15 minutes. 
(Remember to put the silicone sheet on a baking sheet before putting them in the oven)
After melting down I popped the pan into the freezer for about 7 minutes to quick freeze the crayons. 
Then came the presentation. I had some leftover heart di-cuts from another project so I brought those home and glued them together. 
Put a dab of hot glue on the paper heart and attach the crayon. This is important because if you try to put the hot glue on the crayon it will begin to melt again.
Add your saying!
Happy Valentine's Day!
