MELT my heart

I am pretty sure this is one of the first crafts I "pinned" on my boards. It has just been sitting on a board for a while now...waiting for me to give it a try. ;) Wyatt saw the picture the other day and asked about making his own crayons. He thought this was an awesome thing to do so today during Sis's nap we took full advantage of our time! We separated all his crayons that were already broken into a bag. *If I was doing this as a gift or Valentine I would have only used the same colors or even stuck with a theme but these were just for fun. 

He really enjoyed peeling all the paper off. This is something he isn't really supposed to do with his crayons or I would have this mess pictured above EVERY time he colored. Ya, not thanks! After we peeled off all the paper I started chopping...yes, with a good knife. Oops...

After cutting and peeling we put them all in a bowl...Wyatt was SO excited!!!

We put them in the oven for about 15 mins. at 250 degrees....*the molds are rubber ones from IKEA for $.99 ;) SCORE! 

As soon as they finished I set them outside for about an hour. All the reviews stressed the importance of letting them cool so that I did...

After they were cooled all the way I brought them inside for a little bit as well. They were room temp. and I used a knife to get them out CAREFULLY.

They LOVED them...after a minor situation where Wyatt thought they were cookies!?!?!? They were so sweet coloring and taking turns with different hearts. 
This was a successful "pin" for SURE! 


  1. Oh wow, they turned out so good! I feel like I need to take a trip to Ikea to look for those molds, haha!

  2. Found your blog through mama & mou, love it & a, so excited to follow along!! What a sweet family you have!!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
