Candle Making Craft Kit

Beeswax Candles and Bee-havior Kit.

How can your kids make funky, practical art while learning all about everyone's favorite insects? Beeswax Candles & Bee-havior spreads the word about the little honeymakers and includes five brightly colored, 8-inch-by-8-inch sheets of their finest wax, ready for candle-making. The instructions are clear and simple while leaving room for creativity; the only parental supervision needed is in cutting the wicks (and lighting the finished products, of course--beeswax burns hot!). Make beautiful beeswax candles while you learn about bee behavior and test your I.Q. Each of the 5 sheets of natural beeswax can make 12 birthday candles, 2-4 decorative candles or 1 tall taper.

A candle-making kit can be a wonderful activity for the whole family for several reasons:

Firstly, it's a creative and hands-on project that can be enjoyed by individuals of all ages. Each family member can express their unique tastes by choosing different colors, shapes, and scents for their candles. This encourages creativity and personal expression.

Secondly, making candles requires collaboration and teamwork. Family members can work together to melt the wax, monitor the temperature, position the wicks, and pour the mixture into molds. This cooperation can strengthen familial bonds and foster a spirit of teamwork.

Thirdly, the process of making candles can be educational. Children can learn about the states of matter as they watch solid wax become liquid then resolidify into a candle. They can also learn about safety measures when handling heat and flammable materials.

Finally, the end product is a usable, beautiful object that family members can take pride in. Whether used at home or given as gifts, these homemade candles can serve as lasting reminders of a fun and productive family activity.
