Project Instructions

  1. Draw various sizes of hearts on paper with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils.
  2. Cover a flat work area that is safe for ironing with several layers of recycled newspaper. Place a piece of wax paper on top.
  3. With an adult supervising, scrape Crayola crayons into small pieces using a pencil sharpener.
  4. Scatter the crayon colors around the wax paper. Place another sheet of wax paper on top.
  5. ADULT:  Iron the two pieces of wax paper together, melting the crayons. Ironing should be done in a well-ventilated room.  Do not over iron; over ironing crayons or wax paper may result in irritating smell. Allow to cool before handling.
  6. Trace your various shapes of hearts on the waxed paper. Cut out the multicolored hearts with Crayola scissors. Punch a hole near the top. Use ribbon or yarn to make a hanger for your Heart Suncatchers.


Use the hearts on the front of your handmade Valentine's cards!
