It is definitely time for some craftiness.  The fact that the daughter said “Mom, you know we need valentines for tomorrow because Valentine’s Day is Sunday” had nothing to do with it, really.

Here is a small disclaimer, this is not my original idea.  It came from the long thread with some help from make and take.  Check over there for the how-tos and whatnot.

I used a silicone ice cube tray from Ikea.  I tested it in the oven first before we melted the crayons.  It worked ok, but it left a little residue in the container and the bottom of the hearts look matte (which is actually pretty).

The daughter expertly used my paper cutter to cut apart the fabulous valentines from the longest thread
