{heart crayons}

My girls love to make stuff. Most of you already know that babygirl is a little artist... well just like everything else, little bit wants to be just like her. I had seen this project done last year and I wanted to do it with my girls. I'm going to focus on doing some fun at home crafts/projects with them this year... and I'll be sure to try to share them as we go.

This makes for a wonderful rainy day activity. As I mentioned here, we made these last Friday as it rained to pass the time!

I used this silicone baking sheet that were heart shapes. (I picked mine up at Target.) You could use any shape pan, I'm sure. I just found the hearts fun. ♥

Gather broken crayons. There are always broken crayons!
Peel the paper off, this took a little time for D. So, I helped. She had crayon all under her nails when she was done.

Fill the hearts and your ready to go...

Heat oven to 200 degrees.
Bake for around 20 minutes or until melted through.
I found that crayola seemed to melt faster than other crayon brands.

Once melted. Let cool and pop out your new heart crayons. :)
(excuse, my dirty oven)..

About Me

My photo
I am a photographer focused on infant, child, family, maternity, couples and senior photography. I shoot on location, at the location of your choice, in natural light.

I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember - anyone who knows me can tell you that. There is just something about it that makes me smile. After the birth of my first daugther, Delaney, my passion for photography ignited. 33 months later came her baby sister, Avery. I have had my camera in my hand every day since. There isn't a moment I want to miss... the tiny toes, the drool, the smiles, the simple things. My girls are my inspiration for everything. You will often find me in the background snapping those natural moments in life that I don't want to see people forget. Sometimes the best photographs are the ones that are unposed and candid. I love the feeling of capturing such sweet moments and will strive to bring your memories to life in a way that you love.
