Have fun breaking the ones that need to be smaller, or...
...use karate moves to break them by hand!
This is about the size you need them to be.
Fill each mold on a mini heart-shaped muffin pan to the top with crayons. We made some rainbow and some the same color scheme. Don't use black, dark blue or brown crayons, as they tend to overtake the other colors.
Bake them at 250 degrees for 20-25 minutes in a silicone pan or 10-15 minutes in a metal pan. I bought Wilton silicone pans at Ben Franklin, but I bought the last two. You can buy them at Michael's and probably Target. The silicone pans make it easier to pop out the crayons.
Not only are then cute, when you use them they write in a rainbow of color. Have fun, and if you do the craft, let me know how they turned out.

I was on the phone with my mom for awhile and when I hung up, they brought in a plate with string cheese and a piece of buttered toast for my "afternoon snack." Amber told me that she swept and mopped the kitchen floor, too. Then Autumn brought me three colored sheets from her coloring book. Then a rose from our bush out front. Then a dead branch from our Christmas tree with the tinsel still on it. Then a baggie of peanuts (in case I wasn't full enough). Each time they brought me something, they told me to stay in the office because they still had more surprises for me.
So I went online and checked airline tickets for my trip to see my mom at the end of this month. Then I checked my email. They said I still couldn't come out of the office, and so here I am writing this blog...
Well, the last surprise was a hot cup of coffee that they made, complete with hazelnut creamer and whipped cream on top.
"We put too much whipped cream on top so we had to scoop it off and into the trash can," Amber told me.
"Why didn't you just eat it?" I asked.
"We didn't want to get in trouble," she said.
Ooooo, what good little girls I have!
Now, I'm off the drink my yummy coffee.

A few minutes ago, Amber and Autumn came in from playing out front. Amber, my little entrepreneur, was telling me what she and her sister did outside.
"We tried to sell some lemons today, but no one wanted to buy them," Amber said.
"Where did you get the lemons to sell?" I asked.
"Well, Autumn picked some of our neighbor's lemons and we tried to sell them."
