Dabbling on Valentine's Gifts & Crayon Hearts

What's all this you say?  This is what I have been working on for Valentine's Day.
I have not decorated my home for Valentine's Day except with a couple of prints
and a handmade garland.  I'm not much of a decorator outside of Christmas,
but for my son's sake,we'll craft something together that reminds us of the upcoming
holiday, in this case Valentine's Day.

I have also been restocking my little shop with new magnets in blue and green colors.
Perhaps you may want to drop by and check it out for gift giving.
With Valentine's Day, Birthdays and Easter approaching you may want to get some before
they are gone.  Remember, I will not be making any push pins until possibly the summer.

We have also prepared little gifts for his classmates and teacher.  This year his teacher
is getting this "Love is Patient Printable" and perhaps magnets to go along with it.
His classmates will receive homemade heart shaped crayons and other little treats.
Below are some photos of the Heart Shaped Crayons we made.

1. My son chose to make them in different colors.
2. We took off the crayons wrappers.
3. Placed the crayons inside the silicone heart mold & let it melt in
the oven at 325 degrees for about 13 minutes or so.
4. After they melted, we placed them in the refrigerator to cool
and they were harden in minutes, they were easy to pop out with
the silicone mold.  You should try it!

The kids will love these along with small toys and heart shaped lollipops.
Hope that you enjoy!
