Tags: ,

Jamie from Handsonaswegrow is putting together a collaborative fundraiser between bloggers. This is a heart project because all proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the American Heart Association [AHA]. As part of this, She is creating a 12×12 collaborative eBook/physical book of  kids’ art and crafts projects that are related to ‘hearts’. The details are at her blog here..Here is our contribution to that..

Jamie I will email you the high resolution pics.
Here’s how you can make this super easy craft
  1. Materials – A small candle preferably a votive, color coordinated crayons, an A4 sheet and scissors.
  2. Draw a heart shape with a black marker on an A4 sheet
  3. Melt the tip of the crayon [ be sure to remove the paper packaging before you attempt] and drip onto the sheet.  Heat, Drip, Heat, Drip. Repeat till whole area is covered in dots.
  4. Once completed, cutout the heart and paste onto a card sheet [ alternately you can craft on the cardstock directly]
  5. The crayon dot tends to chip off after a few days. A coat of Modpodge does the trick of keeping them in place.

PS: This craft involves fire. Ideally suitable for kids aged 5 and above [ only if they are used to following instructions. No matter what age, please do not attempt without adult supervision ]

The last two are made by Lil P with intermediate hand holding.  icon smile | 3D Melted Crayon Heart Card   Collaborative HeArt Project | Valentines Day Crafts #Age5 7  The Blue is for hubby and red for me.. She pasted it on a card and wrote I Love Dad and I love Mom :)  I think I’m going to frame this one.
