2. Cut the crayons into pieces on a cutting board. Kids can try to break the crayons into pieces instead of using a knife to cut them into pieces.

3. Fill each heart in the silicone mold with the crayon pieces. This mold was the perfect size for our heart-shaped crayons.

4. Bake at 250 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until crayons are fully melted. Allow to cool and harden completely before removing from the mold.
