This step by step tutorial of making candles with homesteading kids is a great skill that adult and children can make together.
Some of the best candles can be made at home rather than found at any store, especially when they are made during special times with your children. From jar candles to candlesticks and pillars, you and your children can spend several hours working together, developing a rhythm as you pour or dip your candle mixture into the right shapes for future use.
You can find most of your supplies at the same retailer, even finding kits that include everything you’ll need. Once you have those supplies and have figured what types of candles you and your children would like to make, you can begin. (Candle Making Kits – Buy Here)
As you work through the process, you’ll gain some special memories with your children from dipping candlesticks to pouring out jar or pillar molds from your melted wax. Allow your children to place thematic items within the wax, such as shells for ocean and beach scents, so all of you can watch them reveal themselves as you burn the candle to the end of its wick.
Candle making is a popular hobby for many as it’s relatively inexpensive when you consider the amount money you can spend on specialty brand candles from supermarkets, craft shows, and other retailers. Why spend that kind of money when you can set up your own candle shop at home?
You can involve the kids, if you have them, and teach them a new skill while having fun at the same time.
