Valentine Hearts

An oldie-but-goodie Valentine's craft! Materials needed:
-pencil sharpener
-wax paper
-tape or string

Start out by sharpening some crayons, and putting the shavings in piles
Lay a piece of wax paper on the table, and scatter the crayon shavings across it.
Put another piece of wax paper on top of the first piece (with the crayon shavings in the middle), and iron for a couple seconds on medium heat. If you don't want melted crayon all over your iron and ironing board, I would recommend putting a piece of newspaper under the bottom piece of wax paper, and another piece of newspaper on top of everything!
Once the wax paper and crayons are melted together, cut out hearts. You can use a template or just cut them out freehand. We taped them onto a window, but you can also punch a hole in the top of each heart and hang them by stings (or make a garland)
