Valentines Day – Crayon Hearts for Kids

Have your kids make crayon hearts for Valentine’s Day with this fun alternative to candy.

By Lisa Milko at EventPerfect.

This is a fun project to do with the kids for Valentines Day (a great alternative to CANDY!)


Crayon pieces

Heart-shaped metal cookie or muffin tin (these are about 1 1/2 inches across)

Scrap paper

Double-sided foam mounting tape


Colored card stock




Heat the oven to 250°.

Fill each mold with crayon pieces and bake until the crayons melt, about 10 to 15 minutes. Tip: Place a sheet pan under the crayons to catch any drips.

Once they're cool, remove the hearts from the molds and smooth any rough edges by rubbing them on a piece of scrap paper.

Use small pieces of foam tape to stick each heart to a 3-inch circle cut from card stock -- then add your message.

Suggested messages: “You color my world” “Valentine, You make my heart melt”

Have a happy Valentine's Day
