We can’t believe Valentine’s Day is coming up so quickly. My favorite part of the holiday is coming up with creative little treats for my kids to hand out. I love the cute sayings and matching them to fun goodies for classroom Valentine’s Day parties.
I recently came across the phrase “Color Your Heart Out” and decided to design a Free Printable Heart Crayon Valentine around it.
I’ve always wanted to make our own set of heart crayons to hand out to the class. It’s such a useable gift idea and all kids love coloring. So, this year M and I set out to make our own set of heart shaped crayons.
We used this crayon making tutorial. For the crayons, I gathered broken ones the kids haven’t used in years. What a great way to recycle!
When filling the silicone mold with the crayons, it’s important to fill the section with a few more crayon pieces than you think you need since the crayons settle when melting.
The crayons also come out of the oven very liquidly. Let them cool for about an hour and they are ready to use.
For the silicone mold, I selected this Wilton Heart Pan (affiliate), which worked great for the matching heart crayon Valentine design. The hearts measure about 1.5″ each, so any mold with those sized hearts will work.
No time to make your own crayons? Or maybe you aren’t even interested in melting wax in your oven. I completely understand.
You can also get handmade heart crayons here (affiliate) so you don’t have to make them yourself. There is even a choice if you want a rainbow marbled, bold solid or the Valentine marble like I made for the card. They look almost the same. No one will ever know.
I designed a heart crayon Valentine card to match the heart crayon shape (it also measures about 1.5″). The best part about the design, though, is that I kept the card black and white. This allows your little recipients to have a card to color with their new crayon. It makes it a true Valentine gift.
You can download your Free Printable Heart Crayon Valentine here. To make your cards, print on heavy white cardstock (affiliate) or a little less heavy if your printer isn’t a huge fan of heavier weight cardstock (affiliate).
Cut out the heart crayon valentines and attach the heart crayon using Glue Dots (affiliate).
