A ‘luurvely’ Valentines gift idea. It’s very easy to make so your little ones can enjoy creating a sweet Valentine’s gift for mum, dad, siblings or grandparents! What you need to do is just melt old bits of crayon into heart shapes and then use them to decorate cards or magnets.

You Need:

Old crayons
A silicone baking tray, heart shaped
An oven

To Make:

Break up old crayons into small pieces.

Fill up the sections of the rubber baking tray.


Put in the oven – I had the oven set to 60c.


Keep a close eye on your oven and once melted remove and allow to ‘set’.


Peel out the heart shaped  melted crayons and stick to a card with a heartfelt message!
