(No idea how we would have gotten these out of a metal pan, actually). You can get them in the craft section at WalMart. Heartshapemold And then you bake at 250 degrees for about fifteen minutes.  Cute idea for kids

The first time I made a batch of playdough for my son I was amazed. Amazed that the recipe worked, amazed at how quick and easy it was and, mostly, amazed at how much nicer it was than the kind that comes in a can. Smooth, supple and soft, even months later. If you're still buying dough in a can, I urge you to convert. And there's a whole world of art supplies you can make in your own kitchen - some I've never even heard of like flubber, glurch, gak and oobleck.
