This year, ET is getting his Karate ones--easy peasy. Thumbelina is in Kindergarten so she gets to give out cards this year...to more than just cousins. So I searched the internet and found a couple of easy-to-let-a-5-year-old-help ideas and let her pick one. So we are combining this one from Chef Messy:
With this one from The Long Thread:
She likes the round shape but doesn't get the "for 'crayon' out loud" part. We have already completed the melting of the crayons. I didn't want to buy a heart pan just to use for crayons so I found some silicon-ish ice cube trays at Target in the Dollar section and they totally don't melt in the oven! The shape isn't as sharp as a metal pan but there is no mistaking the heart shape. Can I just say I love putting the metallic crayons in! All of the crayons have metallic swirls in them.
Now to find my mat and cut out the circles so she can stick them all together. Then I will have to hide them until Valentines Day.
