I've got lots of pictures to share, so here ya go.

First, some of the girls playing in the snow last week.

Also, some of Sophie at her ballet class last week. 

And lastly, some pictures of the Valentine crayons we made for Sara's class.

First, we got some aluminum cupcake liners at Target.

Then we peeled the labels off of a bunch of crayons.  It works best if you use Crayola brand only.

We then broke the crayons into smaller pieces and covered the bottom of the cupcake liners.

Bake for about 20 minutes at 300 degrees and they should look something like this.

Allow them to cool until they are completely hardened.  When you take them out of the molds, they will look something like this.

I put the finished crayons into colored baggies and tied colored hearts on them. 

The hearts said, "You Color My World Valentine"


  1. Those were all adorable. I loved the snow photos,the ballet photos were priceless and what a fantastic idea for Valentine's Day. Perect!

  2. And the Mommy of the year goes to....."LAURIE"! How stinking creative YOu are!! I love this! The pictures are so cute!! Thanks for sharing! I miss not seeing your blog so often!!

  3. Pop and both loved the snow and ballet pictures. The girls looked so adorable and they seemed to be having a blast. I remember how much fun you had playing in the snow when you were a little girl.

    I agree with Tina. You are a very creative Mom! I love you - and those girls!!!

  4. I love the crayon hearts! I'm totally stealing that idea. :) I have to make sure to stock up on crayola during the .25 sale.
