Valentine's Day LINKY PARTY - Valentine's Day craft

Last year, my students made a a very cute craft which incorporated the American Sign Language "I love you" sign, which was used all the time in my house hold growing up, but as I guess, none of my students knew what it meant.

Check out my original post: Valentine's Day Craft.

It was simple to make, the students cut out 1 large heart, 1 medium heart, and one small heart from craft foam.  Then they traced their hands on craft foam and cut that out. We had a lesson in being careful around the glue gun as I glued the pieces together.  Then the students wrote "I love you" on the small heart.  

This year, I'm hoping to make heart shaped crayons with my students.  I purchased a heart shaped cookie/brownie tray.  A co-worker suggested spraying the pan with non-stick spray, then freezing the crayons right after taking them out of the oven.  Hopefully that will prevent ruining my new tray from ever being used on food items?  Check out Martha Stewart's recipe.
