    Aw This is Such an Adorable Idea for Kids, Thanks So Much for Sharing! I Love Anything to Do with Arts & Crafts or DIY, I Have Loved to Make Things Like This Ever Since I Was a Little Girl! I Don’t Personally Have Any Kids but I Do Have Nieces & Nephews and They Would Love This! I Think it’s a Cute Idea to Give Kids for Valentines Day with Some Valentines Candy & Maybe a Coloring Book! It’s Also an Awesome Way to Use Up the Nubs of Small Crayons or Broken Crayons! Well Thanks Again for Sharing, Have a Blessed Day My Friend! – Jana

  3. This is so cool!! I love all of the silicon baking molds that have been coming out lately (or at least this is the first I am seeing them)! This would be so fun to do with my little ones for Valentine’s Day. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  4. Those are totally cool. I bet you could make them out of tiny old crayons too. Great way to use the old ones and make them special.

  5. I find the silicon baking molds at garage sales, this would be fun to do with the kids. You could do this for many holidays.

  6. What a cute idea! And who doesn’t have leftover crayons!!!!

  7. These are so cute! I love this idea, and the fact that you can do it with any mold to use for party favors or other holidays. My niece is into mermaids right now, and she wants to have a sea-themed birthday party. These would be so cute in a seashell mold.
