Kids love coloring, but do you know what they love more? Coloring with fun-shaped crayons that have rainbow colors in them. I found this awesome tutorial on Pinterest of DIY heart-shaped crayons.
But I was failing at peeling the wrappers off. So I called Leah. She is a crayon-wrapper-removing PRO!
<– Do you see how some of those wrappers came off in one big piece?! She used a knife to get them started and somehow they just came off.
Then we cut them up into little pieces… I used a knife which was pretty painful on my hands; Leah just broke them. What a beast!
Next, we loaded up all the chunks into this lovely heart ice cube tray that I picked up in the dollar bins at Target. :o) We made sure to evenly distribute the different colors among the hearts so we would have the best possible rainbow crayons.
I just did exactly what the instructions on pinterest said: Turn the oven on at 230 degrees and put them in (on a cookie sheet) for 15 minutes. It was perfect.
I think they turned out great! What do you think?
I think I’m going to bring them to the preschool so the kids can use them. I don’t have enough to let all of my students take one home, but I think it would be nice for a Valentine’s Day coloring activity or something. :o)
I think this is the first Pinterest thing that I’ve actually done! Yay for me!!!
