From February 1-14 we'll be doing non-stop Valentine's posts to celebrate this lovely holiday!

Wax paper hearts are a combination activity and craft. This only involves a few items too!

Here is what you will need:

Wax paper
Pencil sharpener
Cookie Sheet
Parchment paper (or construction paper will work too)
Scissors and string

Remove a long sheet of wax paper from the container and place it on the cookie sheet.
Have your child (or help them) take Valentine's colored crayons (white, pink, red, a little gray) use the pencil sharpener to create crayon shavings.

Spread the shaving out all over the wax paper.
Fold the paper in half.

Set the wax paper aside to cool completely.

Use a scissors to cut out heart shapes from the wax paper.
Attach a string and hang from a window. A perfect amount of color to cheer up any window from the gloomy and gray look of winter, don't you think? (My son had a great idea too---you could also hang them from the mantle of a fire place for a festive flock of hearts!)
