Supplies:  crayons, glue, cardstock, silicone heart mold, and markers

Homemade Valentine Cards

Step one:  Take the paper off the crayons.  This took awhile!

Step two: Let the adult cut the crayons into pieces on a cutting board.

Step four:  Help your child cut out heart shapes form card stock.  We folded the paper in half to make the perfect shaped heart and it was easier for my daughter to cut out.

Step five:  Glue the hearts together.  Then I lightly wrote in pencil “Happy Valentine’s Day for “crayon” out loud!”; after that my daughter was able to trace it with a marker!
