W is for...Wax. Wiggles. And Wind.

W! We made wax hearts today. Which is a pretty popular craft these days, but for good reason. It's cheap, looks good, and is pretty simple. The tutorial is here on Martha Stewart, Crayon Hearts.

You unwrap your crayons, and sharpen them onto the wax paper.

Or use a microplane like Rachel is here.

Then you put the wax paper in between foil sheets (to protect your iron and ironing surface). Iron with low heat. It doesn't take much heat. I ironed on top of a stepping stool, hence the random dot grid from it's surface. Whoops.

Once the wax has hardened again, cut out into hearts, punch a hole and hang. Tada!

For the letter W we also...

  1. Sang "I wiggle my fingers..." song from the LDS children's songbook
  2. Pointed to things around the room that start with W.
  3. Ate M&M cookies...which upside down are W's
  4. Read a book about Wind and a book about Weather

Hooray for the letter W!
