Am I the only mom in the world who has kids that don't peel their crayons? This year I decided to melt crayons into heart shaped ice cube trays, but the most difficult part was peeling all those crayons! I used the double boiler method with some leftover food cans. They turned out fine, but I think I took on too much this year, with 2 kids, we had to do enough for about 25 kids. Hopefully they will use them! I tied them into tiny cello bags with a bow on top. I recruited daddy to help, since it ended up being more work than I bargained for. This might be a great project for parents whose kids enjoy peeling all of their crayons. It takes a LOT of crayons to do this.
Here's my oldest's lunch for Valentine's, complete with heart shaped PB&J and I hulled the strawberries in a way that, when sliced, looked like hearts! Daddy wrote the message with a food marker.
