It’s almost time for Valentine’s Day! What a great way to show those you love how much you care by creating something special!
Here’s one craft that will add a lot of love to your Valentine’s day!
Create a Stained-Glass Heart made out of melted crayons:
- Crayons (light & bright colors work best: think pinks, purples, and reds)
- Hand held pencil sharpener or a pair of scissors (be careful, an adult may need to shave the crayons)
- Waxed Paper
- Permanent marker to write your own message
- Optional: glitter to add a little shine!
Step 1: Peel the paper off of the crayons (try soaking in warm water for better results). Use a pencil sharpener or scissors to shave the crayons over a large sheet of waxed paper. Spread the shavings evenly on the paper. The more shavings, the better!
Step 2: This step is for parents–Set oven to 175 degrees and place the cookie sheet into the oven. Time may vary depending on how much shavings you use, but it should take about 5 minutes to completely melt. Keep checking on the progress every few minutes!
Step 5: After you’re done cutting out your hearts, decorate them for your Valentine–add glitter, written messages, or anything you desire!
We hope you have a great Valentine’s Day!
