Our theme for March is "EASTER"
When my kids were little we used to make these candles at Easter time. We saved up candles and crayons during the year so we could use them. I had a helper with this challenge. This was his first year of making these candles.
Wash the eggs and dry them off.
Parent Step Only:--Step 2:
Poke a hole in each end. One end bigger than the other
Have someone blow the egg out
Rinse the egg out and let dry while you are melting the wax.
Parent only Step: -- Step 5:
Melt the wax. I save candles throughout the year and them put them in a plastic bag and heat in hot water on the stove. You can add broken pieces of crayons for color.
Use duck tape to cover the smallest hole at the bottom.
Parent Step Only--Step 7:
You will want to do this and not let a child as the wax is hot. I used the container that the eggs come in to stand the egg shell in.If you have a small funnel it works great to put in the top of the egg and pour the wax in until it is about 1/2 full.
Stick a birthday candle in the wax and let set for a few minutes.
Finish pouring the rest of the wax in the candle and then put them in the refrigerator to cool or leave them out overnight. We could never wait overnight.
Peel off the shell
Parent only step--Step 11:
Parent please do this: use a knife to shave off a little at the bottom so it will sit up. Then put then on a glass plate and lite them.
This blog hop will run from today, March 27th until March 30th. We will be
drawing for winners on March 31st.
I will also draw a name and be sending out a free gift this month as well. If you become a follower your name will go in twice.

Have fun and I hope you give this a try with your children or grandchildren.
