Kiddie Valentines

V is in a the 2-year-old class at a church Mother's Day Out two days a week, and is having a little Valentine party tomorrow at school.  I thought I'd share our valentines for his friends, which happen to be non-candy, non-food, which isn't like me at all, but kind of refreshing.  :)

I found this idea for heart-shaped crayons on Pinterest and have had it pinned to my Valentine's Day board for a while.  Here's the original link. Here's my instructions:

Take some old, broken, paper-peeled-off crayons and chop them into small pieces (I used some of every color).  Put pieces into heart-shaped silicon mold.  Mine was an ice cube tray, so the crayons were pretty small, but of course you could use muffin tins or whatever.  I kind of think that you could put them into a shallow pan and then use a cookie cutter, but don't take my word for it!

Put the silicon mold onto a cookie sheet and bake at 230 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. Let set and pop them out!  Have fun!

If you have some fun valentine ideas for kiddos, I'd love for you to leave them or a link to them in the comments below.  Happy Valentine's Day!
