Doing crafts with children has been a great way to beat the boredom from as long as I can remember, especially during the long summer break. If you are looking for something inexpensive and fun to do with your children, consider making beautiful candle holders and other candle themed projects such as recycling old candles into something beautiful.
You can make beautiful party decorations and also table centerpieces using candles. You can also make fake candles from toilet paper tubes and construction paper. Whether children work with actual candles or make replicas of candles, there are many creative candle craft options to choose from.
Here is a simple candle-making craft. Apply a heavy coat of gold paint or glue to the outside of a clear glass mixing bowl. Sprinkle gold glitter and sequins over the paint while it is still wet. With parental supervision, half fill the bowl with cooled paraffin, inserting three wicks.
