For some crazy reason...I decided I was going to make a crayon heart for every student at our school for Valentine's Day. I don't do holidays in my classroom at all.....so....it kind of makes this all the crazier?!?!!? I raided all my crayon boxes...other teachers gave me their broken crayons when they heard I going to do this....and I have some back up crayons that I don't normally use because they are not the brand I feel holds up the best in the art room. So....I think I have enough crayons to do this. Using hot water and soap...and allowing them to soak allowed the paper to fall right off(although sometimes Crayola paper is kind of booger to get off!!!!). I have a toaster oven in my classroom & my heart mold. So I'm good to go, right??! Well, with close to 600 students at our school...and a mold that only makes six hearts at a time... my class room smells like a crayon factory 24/7 right now!! ha ha Am I crazy?!?!?! Wait...don't answer that!
