On the first day of our Adventskalendar, the kids opened up a beeswax candle rolling kit! They are 2.5 and 5.5 years old, and this simple craft was excellent and age appropriate for their sweet little hands. It was easy for them to get the hang of and the mess factor was very low.
Little miss 2.5 needed help rolling her beeswax candles, but loved tearing the wax sheets and decorating her rolled candles.
Mr. 5.5 could roll the candles himself, and loved decorating them as well. He is excited to give them to grandparents as Christmas gifts this year.
The process is simple, intuitive and self explanatory and there are many opportunities to vary the approach based on the little artist’s vision.
This was one of my favorite art okay activities this advent season. I hope you get a chance to try some beeswax candle rolling with your family this season as well. Enjoy!
