WF21 Grade 3: Candle Making

Children of all ages enjoy dipping candles, and they make a lovely holiday gift! It provides a rhythmic break from the excitement of Winter Fair.

Children can either choose to dip a candle, or to hand roll candles. These activities will be accompanied by live harp musicians.

We need help from parents in supervising this timeless and much-loved activity.

Beeswax Fairy

Keep an eye on the levels of melted wax in the crock pots, as well as the backup supply of melted wax for refilling. Monitor water levels in dipping jars. This job requires a love for the smell of beeswax, and lots of stirring!
