Candle making with Francesca

Francesca was lucky enough to receive a candle making kit from Auntie Elly, Uncle Jules and Ciaran for Christmas.  So on Friday we had a go at making a stacking candle.  The minimum age on the kit is 7 years, but if I’m honest, I would say that it’s more suitable for older kids, maybe 10/11 since it involves melting wax on a hob.

So under Francesca’s guidance, I made this candle.  It wasn’t quite as fiddly as it seemed when I first read the instructions and (to my surprise) it actually lit and burned perfectly well!

It's as exciting as watching wax melt ;)
