Asante and Aly helped find all of our broken crayons, and then took the paper off. Ada picked up the paper that fell on the floor. They took this job very seriously - and did a great job at it!
As they were unwrapping, I cut the crayons so that each piece was no longer than 1/2". We randomly placed the pieces of crayon into the (sprayed with vegetable oil) heart-shaped silicon cupcake pan (oh how I love the dollar spot at Target!). It wasn't until after we made these that I read a recommendation that you should avoid browns, dark blues, blacks, dark greens, etc. The best looking crayons are ones that are made of bright colors. We didn't abide by this, and I think they turned out okay...
|whoops, a tiny spill when taking them out of the oven.|
Happy Valentines Day!
