We can’t believe Valentine’s Day is coming up so quickly. My favorite part of the holiday is coming up with creative little treats for my kids to hand out. I love the cute sayings and matching them to fun goodies for classroom Valentine’s Day parties. I recently came across the phrase “Color Your Heart Out” and decided to design a free printable Valentine crayon card around it.
I’ve always wanted to make our own set of heart crayons to hand out to the class. It’s such a useable gift idea and all kids love coloring. So, this year M and I set out to make our own set of heart shaped crayons. We used this crayon making tutorial and used broken crayons the kids haven’t used in years. The best tip I learned was to fill the section with a few more crayon pieces than you think you need since the crayons settle when melting. The crayons will also come out liquidy. Let them cool for about an hour and they are ready to use.
For the silicone mold, I selected this Wilton Heart Pan, which worked great for the matching Valentine crayon card design. The hearts measure about 1.5″ each, so any mold with those sized hearts will work.
I designed a Valentine card to match the heart crayon shape (it also measures about 1.5″). The best part about the design, though, is that I kept the card black and white. This allows your little recipients to have a card to color with their new crayon. It makes it a true Valentine gift.
