Microwave Melted Crayon Valentines

You don’t need a knife or even an oven to make these adorable valentines. Microwave Melted Crayon Valentines are simple and fairly quick to make!

How to make Microwave Melted Crayon Valentines in the Microwave:

Step 1:  Cut the heart mold to fit into your microwave and place it on a microwave safe plate.  This is important because the mold will have to be able to sit on your rotating plate and turn completely around.  If your mold does that already, there is no need to do this step.

Step 2:  Soak and peel the crayons.  They are just much easier to peel after soaking.  (Although, I will say I threw some crayons out because it was not worth the hassle.)

Step 3:  Break them into fourths.  Sure, you can use a knife or some scissors, but they break into pieces just fine with your hands.  (Even my 3 year old was able to break a few.)  You can break them smaller but I really like the look of the bigger chunks of crayons.

Step 4:  Fill the mold with the crayons.  Fill them all the way to the top and use any desired color combinations.

Step 5:  Microwave for 5 minutes.  You want the majority of the crayons to be melted into liquid but if you have a few crayons that appear to still be in the shape of a crayon that’s ok.  Your time may vary depending on your microwave and the age of your crayons.

REMEMBER: you are working with nonfood items in your microwave.  Use much caution.  Never walk away from the microwave.  Go slow and pay attention.

Step 6:  Freeze for 20 minutes (or so.)  Freeze them until they are solid.

Step 7:  Break them out of the mold and attach them to your valentines with a glue dot or foam square.  You do want to use something with some thickness because the crayons will have a ledge (because of the meniscus if I remember correctly from high school science.)
