    Howxa0toxa0Makexa0Floatingxa0Candles xa0


    The key to a floating candle is a short shape with a slightly wider top than bottom. Wax naturally


    floats so you have little to worry about.



    You Will Need



    Paraffin Wax


    Wicks and Wick Tabs (Usually sold together in craft stores)


    Muffin/Cupcake Pan/Individual Jell-O Molds, etc.


    Scissors


    Melting Pot for Wax (I use a large aluminum can) and regular saucepan or double-boiler for


    melting wax


    Thermometer


    Optional- Candle Coloring and/or Scent Block



    1. Find an appropriate pan or mold. For simplicity sake, a muffin pan will work fine. Grease


    with a little vegetable oil or cooking spray to help the candles pop out easily.



    2. Prepare the wicks by inserting the wicks into the wick tabs.



    3. Boil water in a large saucepan. Place the melting container in the boiling water, or use a


    double boiler specially for melting max (you wouldn’t want to use the pan for anything


    else).



    4. Place several chunks of wax into the melting container. Be sure to monitor the wax as it


    is melts with a thermometer and turn off the heat at 180 degrees F. Parraffin wax will


    ignite at 375 degrees F and must be extinguished with baking soda or a fire extinguisher,


    so be careful!



    5. Once melted and the heat is off, add coloring and scent if you desire. You can use dye


    chips specially for coloring candles or liquid dye added with an eye-dropper. For scents,


    use shaved pieces from a scent block and avoid essential oils, since most are not designed


    for the high-heat of candles.

    6. Pour about an inch of wax into each of the molds in the muffin pan and let cool slightly.



    7. Once the wax begins to show some consistency with a skin on the top, press the tab of a


    wick into the bottom of each mold with a chopstick, spoon or skewer.



    8. Once set, pop out your candles and float in water.

    Easterxa0Eggxa0Mobilexa0


    By: Mama King of 4 Crazy Kings


    This wonderful project to do with kids this Easter comes to us from the ever-creative Mama King


    of 4 Crazy Kings. Have the kids decorate egg shapes cut from clear contact paper to create Easter


    mobiles that let the sun shine through. Use whatever collage materials you have on hand such as


    sequins, glitter, paint and more.





    Materials:


    • 2 identical egg shaped paper templates


    • Clear Contact/Shelf Paper


    • Ribbon


    • Hole Punch


    • Collage Materials (tissue, sequins, ribbon, feathers, glitter...)


    • Tape


    • Scissors


    Tip: before starting any project with small children make sure your materials are set up. It helps


    the flow of the project and stops impatience on the child's part and frustration on your part.
