Bake a tray of many-hued heart crayons for your kiddos this February 14. Sugar-free and full of color, this activity yields one dozen kaleidoscopic crayons in less than an hour. First, soak two 24-packs of crayons in water for 10 minutes to loosen the papers. Peel the papers from your crayons and chop them up using a utility knife. Fill a heart-shaped cupcake tin or silicone ice cube tray (available at many local retailers) with your crayon bits. Pop the tray into the oven at 250 degrees for 15 minutes.
