Valentine's Day Gifts

With Valentine's Day around the corner my son and I took this weekend to complete some "homemade" gifts and they came out really well! I wanted to share how to make these adorable heart shape crayons!
First, we took some old crayons (I had a new box waiting once we were done).

 Then we got pealing! This part took a bit, long enough that my little helper left me because his  fingers couldn't handle it anymore.
 As a side note if you just painted your nails do not do this project. This was the end result of my new manicure after this step.
 Once you pealed all the paper off your crayons use a knife to chop them up into little bits about 1/2inch long.
 Use a silicone ice cube tray (I found mine from amazon for about $5). Top off the ice cube tray with the crayon pieces and place on a baking tray. Set your oven for 250 degrees and leave the tray in for 15 minutes or until all the crayons are melted.
 Once all the crayons are liquid take them out of the oven and let them sit for an hour or more. You need the wax to be completely solid.
 After an hour passes you can pop the now heart shape crayons out of the tray. They have a really  cool marble look to them!
 I created a little gift tag and mini coloring pages to go with these adorable crayons! You can grab your copy HERE!

Our Kindergarten and First Grade teachers have been working hard to build sight word recognition. I came up with a fun EDITABLE game to help our  learners master their sight words. You can grab your copy by click on the image below.

Hope you have fun celebrating this 'lovely' holiday with your learners.


  1. Nice ideas of gifts. Gifts are to share your emotions and feeling to each other. You can visit here to have great ideas of gifts.

    1. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

      Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

      Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

      Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

      And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

      Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

      Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

      It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

      And even begging to be with you.

      Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

      Thanks again.
