Valentine’s DIY Crayons


ooking for a quick and easy Valentine's Day craft to do with your kids? Look no further. These Valentine's DIY recycled crayons are adorable and fun to make. My kids loved working on these, and they are so proud of their finished product.

I love this craft specifically, because we have so many broken and old crayons laying around. This projects makes use of all of them!

Pro tip = Change up your colors and make these for whatever holiday you need them for!

Preheat oven to 250 F. Remove paper wrapping from crayons and break into small pieces.

Step Two:

Place crayons and glitter in silicone mold. Fill to top as the crayons will condense once melted.

Remove melted crayons from oven and place in freezer immediately for 10 minutes.
