    Heart Shaped Crayon and Coloring Page

    Crayon heart and coloring page gift
    Christine Gauvreau

    Give them a Valentine’s Day-themed coloring page and a homemade, heart-shaped crayon to go with it. You won’t believe how easy the crayons are to make – even better, you get to use up all of those broken crayons you already have around the house.

    How to Make a Heart Shaped Crayon

    1. Gather the crayons you would like to use, a muffin pan, cupcake liners, and foil. (If you have a heart-shaped muffin pan, you can skip the liners and aluminum foil.)
    2. Break up the crayons into small pieces.
    3. Line the muffin...MORE pan with paper liners.
    4. Roll up small balls of aluminum foil and insert them between the paper liners and pan cups to form heart-shaped indents in the papers.
    5. Pour the crayon bits into the heart-shaped muffin cups.
    6. Bake at 250 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until the crayons have melted.
    7. Remove from oven and let cool.
    8. Peel off the paper liners.

    Place the heart shaped crayons in a gift bag with a rolled up coloring page.

    Whether you are the teacher making treats for her students, a mom sending in cupcakes for the classroom Valentine’s Day party, or just need a cute gift idea for your child’s classmates, try these personalized, heart-shaped cupcakes. Simply bake a batch of heart-shaped cupcakes and use a gel icing pen to write the children’s names on top.

    Wrap them individually in cellophane if you are sending them to school as take-home treats. For cupcakes that will be eaten in the classroom, allow kids to come...MORE up and find the one with their name at snack time.

    Just Write Pencil

    Valentine pencil and paper heart.
    C. Gauvreau

    Something every student – and teacher – can always use is an extra pencil. Pick up some Valentine’s Day themed pencils from the dollar store, craft shop or party supply retailer. Print a message that reads, “You’re Just Write for Me!” on decorative paper. Cut it into a heart shape, gently fold and cut a slit on each side. Run the pencil through the slits, just like an arrow piercing through the heart.
