Fun Valentine's Craft

Looking for a cute way to craft with your kids for Valentine's day? This one is simple and requires very few supplies (aka very little money!)

Supplies needed
crayons in your favorite Valentine's colors
wax paper
craft paper or cardstock
pencil sharpener
string or ribbon
an iron

  1. Take a large piece of wax paper, about 12x18 and fold it in half, then unfold
  2. Using your pencil sharpener, sharpen the crayons, to create wax shavings
  3. Spread the wax shavings evenly across one half of your folded wax paper
  4. Fold the other half of the wax paper back over, so the crayon shavings are between the two halves, then crimp the three open sides a half inch to hold the shavings in
  5. Put a piece of the craft paper down on your ironing board, then place the wax paper over it, and add another sheet of craft paper on top
  6. Iron on medium, checking frequently, until the shavings have melted
  7. Once cool, cut out hearts from the wax paper and hang them from the strings

Anyone else have some fun and inexpensive craft ideas to share for Valentine's day? Bring 'em on!
