Have you ever made melted crayon valentines? They are so fun to do. I’ll never forget, a few years ago, I thought I was being so incredibly creative and I pulled out all of our broken crayons. Julia, Nate, and I sat at the kitchen table and peeled the crayons for hours. We made little hearts with explosions of color. I carefully wrapped them up and sent them to my friend Kelly in Texas. Our kids have always been close and love sending packages to each other.
A few days later, we received a valentine’s day package in the mail from them. We opened it and burst out laughing when we also found little melted crayon hearts and stars. I called Kelly and found out we had actually mailed the packages the exact same day! Good times.
Well, if you’ve never made them, they are so easy and perfect for little hands.
