Valentines Necklaces

Here we go again melting beads♡

Melted Perler Beads

image

Here is what we used:
Valentines heart mold
Heart cookie cutters
Perler Beads
Pony Beads
Lacing strings
Cookie sheet

1. Place cookie cutters on top of cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray.

2. We separate the beads into colors.

3. I added a pony bead to the top of each thinking that would be a great spot to put in the string after.

4. Bake at 400 for 10 mins or until melted.

5.  I took them out and placed in freezer for a few mins.

6. Some of my pony beads fell out and they all melted shut. I just pulled out all the melted ones. There was still a hole so no worries.  I used a string, laced on one new non-melted bead and then laced though the ornament.

Painting Salt Sculptures

We thought we would use our valentine’s day pan again.

image

Here is what we used:
1 cup salt
1 Tablespoons water
Food coloring and water
Valentines Cookie Pan

image

Mix salt and water, press into any mold you have.

Let set in the mold over night.

Dump out and let dry a few more hours.

Once dry, drip paint on top.

We mixed a few drops of water with food coloring. I think water colors
would have been a better choice.

Watching the colors spread was really fun. This was not a take home craft. After the kids played we washed them down the drain.

We found this idea here http://www.funathomewithkids.com/2014/04/painted-salt-sculptures.html?m=1

Pull out all your old crayons.  I know if you do daycare or just have a couple kids at home you probably have a bunch of broken crayons. Here is a perfect craft that will help use them up.

Here is what you need:
Crayons
Valentines Cookie Sheet

Let the kids peel away.
Bake at 200 for 20 mins or tell melted.
Then let them cool.
If you are impatient like me or they stick, pop them in the freezer.
