This being Austin's first year of preschool, it was also the first Valentine's Day that he actually exchanged valentines with other kids. Austin and I went to the Target and looked at all of our valentine giving options but were not excited about it. I really wanted something he could help create, and since he can't write his own name, store bought valentines were out. So, I resorted to online research and was thrilled when I found an idea to make heart shaped crayons. Austin had a great time peeling the paper off the crayons, breaking them up and deciding which colored crayons went together to make the prettiest heart. These were super easy and I think they turned out great.
