As my youngest, Ben, and I were searching for some fun Valentine day related activities to do, we quickly stumbled across the DIY heart shaped crayons activity. At thePlate Boutique we carry a good assortment of silicone ice cube tray – including a heart-shaped one – and we always have an ample supply of broken crayons. So viola! An easy and fun Valentine day craft to do together.
If you’re looking for a way to reduce waste, have fun, and make good use of your ice cube tray, I hope you’ll consider giving this a try:
Here’s what you need:

Once crayons are completely cool, pop out and get ready to color!
