Rolling your own beeswax candles is a fun, rewarding and incredibly easy craft. Each kit contains twelve square sheets of sweet-smelling beeswax in rainbow hues or autumnal colors, plus 6 yards of wicking.
You'll find everything you need to make 12 straight-sided or 24 tapered candles for yourself or to give as gifts. Made in the USA.
A great gift idea for ages 5 and up with adult supervision.

Comments about Product: Everyone in my household, from our two-year-old up to Dad the old fart, has enjoyed this kit immensely. We would burn one candle each night at dinner until it was gone and then move on to the next child's creation, which made it very special for each child to have his/her work displayed and enjoyed at family dinners. The kids have given their candles as gifts, we have made small candles for birthday cakes, you name it. Cleanup is easy and they can pretty much do this unsupervised as long as I pre-cut the wicks for them. This is a great kit for those parents among us who admittedly do not love crafting but want to let our children enjoy all the fun and creativity that crafting offers! Also, this kit lasts a long time. I bought the kids their first set just after Christmas and it lasted almost a year (we did not really make candles much over the summer). Highly recommend.

A lot of fun!
Comments about Product: My 3 girls, ages 3, 7, and 10, loved using this kit. It was easy enough for my 3 year old to use and interesting enough for my 10 year old. The wax is easy to roll and to cut (to make decorations on the rolled candles). The candles do burn fairly quickly. They loved giving them as gifts and using them in our home.

Comments about Product: This is a great craft kit. My kids love to make something that becomes a useful part of our day. The candles are really cute and burn surprisingly well. I love that they are not scented with carcinogenic scents! The only changes I would make would be to include more wax and have better instructions for creating decorations on the outside of the candles. Love it.

delightful candle rolling ikt
Comments about Product: Overall, this is a simple yet lovely kit for a young child to roll up their own beeswax candles. The sheets of beeswax were easy to use for my 8 and 10 year olds and I could not find anything comparable at the craft store where all the candle kits required melting the wax. The colors are beautiful, no toxic scents, and it made for an easy, not too time consuming activity with no real clean up involved. I will buy again. My children were pleased to give the final product as presents.

Great Crafty Product
Comments about Product: This is a great craft project and fun way to bond with your child and make gifts for family and friends. Only wish that more wick strings were included. We misplaced the one included and now have to go to a craft store to replace.

Great activity for a snowy afternoon!
Comments about Product: I bought this kit because I thought it would be an easy and relaxing activity to do with my two daughters, age 4 and 7. Boy was I was right! They had so much fun working together and coming up with different designs and best of all we were able to give the finished candles away as gifts at Christmas. Everyone LOVED them!

the class loved making their own candles
Comments about Product: My granddaughter was assigned to be a colonial candlemaker for a school project. Her display area was crowded with kids wanting to make their own candles. Because she had lots of different colored sheets of beeswax and plenty of wicking material, all the students got to keep their own creations and take them home. A very big hit!

Bright and Beautiful Fun
Comments about Product: This set makes between 12 and 24 candles that burn nicely and are really quick to make up.
Even a smaller child could help and it doesn't make any mess, either!The only thing I would change is that the wax could be more scented. I miss that honey smell...

Great for school party
Comments about Product: I bought 2 pastel boxes of these for a Valentines party for a class of 19. I cut each sheet in 1/2 and had the kids roll both halves up to make one shorter, fatter candle for their moms. They tied ribbons around them and made gift bags. It was a nice gender neutral craft for Valentine's day. My 8 yr. old son loved it.
