For my sons Preschool Valentines Day celebration we signed up for the craft. It seems to be our thing. I decided to have the kids decorate heart shaped boxes. I found the boxes at the craft store (I had to go to 3 stores to get enough) the boxes were $1-$2 a piece. I brought water colors, markers, crayons and stickers. The kids had fun. Everyone seemed to love the idea and most importantly my son Orion loves his heart box. His baby brother even got to make one too.
For my sons first Valentines Day at Preschool we made heart shaped rainbow crayons. It was easy and fun. We used crayons that were already broken and some that weren’t. We broke them into small pieces and put them in heart shaped molds that I bought for a dollar at Target. We placed them in a Pyrex pan in the oven on 250 degrees for about ten minutes. Then because my son was anxious for them to harden I stuck them in the freezer for about a half an hour. Then I glued them onto card stock. They turned out so cute and he was so proud of our homemade Valentines.
