Since my son has started school, he has become obsessed with coloring. We have so many crayons laying around, that I was excited to try to make some Heart-Shaped Crayons by melting some of the extra ones from our supplies. Andrew was so excited about these crayons — he kept yelling, “Hearts!”
The great thing about these crayons is that you can even use broken ones. Now, when your vigorous toddler accidentally breaks a crayon in two, you can make these.

Using a very sharp knife, cut through the wrapper on each crayon length-wise and remove it. Break the crayons into small pieces, if they are not already broken.
Sort the crayons by colors that will work well together — greens and yellows; blues and purples; and pinks and reds.
Fill each heart in the silicone mold with broken crayons. This mold was the perfect size, and I love the indentations of smaller hearts!
Bake a 250 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until crayons are fully melted. Allow to cool and harden completely before removing from the mold.
I attached the crayons to the Valentine’s Day cards using a drop of hot glue. I think they turned out really cute!
