candle making

Here's a nice little school holiday activity that doesn't leave bits of cardboard, glue, glitter etc around the house.
Roll the sheet of beeswax around the wick, and roll until you have no more beeswax. simple!
I only use beeswax candles, as paraffin irritates my airways. No wonder, since it's a petrochemical. Other waxes don't seem to cut it either. Beeswax also gives off negative ions when burned, which are good for us.
Also a good activity for when your little sister is asleep :)

It's always a good idea to avoid soy candles too as most soy is now GMO (gee thanks Monsanto). I think my 2 older children are still a little young for this activity although Jasper (4) might be up to it. Where do you source your beeswax and wicks from?
