There are so many Easter Traditions we didn't get to do this year. Boo!
But we have been doing this one a few years and it made a great Sunday afternoon activity with friends last week. The kids enjoyed burning these at dinner.
:: Egg Candles ::
Cut up any old candles but ensure you keep the wick.
Melt cut candles in a saucepan
Use an old saucepan. It may never be the same, the wax will remain.
We have a really old one the kids play with in the garden
Pour melted wax into egg shells.
Leave to cool.
Before wax sets place/push a small piece of the wick in the middle of the wax.
Hold wick inplace till hard/wick can stand up alone.
Try to keep wick tall and straight away from the walls of the egg.
#note. These are small candles and won't burn for long. During dinner or an Easter devotional only. Also note the eggshells can/will get hot and if the wick is too close to egg shell it can burn.
Be vigilant and keep watch. Be careful with fire and children.
