The girls and I set to work making cabin candles in OLD jam jars. They measured the wicks and threaded on a little base to weigh it down, we secured the wick with a felt pen to keep it central.
We melted the candles in an OLD metal bowl on the gas ring. Then sifted out any debris - OLD wick ends, labels, matches etc. with an OLD soup spoon.
Next we poured the wax into an OLD plastic jug, topped up the jars and talked a lot about science type things - hot/cold/melt/solid/liquid/energy/fuel/recycling/light/dark....
They stood in cold water for two hours and there you are, four NEW cabin candles and a science lesson for inquiring minds. What to do next? make four more with purple wax ends of course.
