Beeswax Candles for Shabbat and Havdalah
For ages 3 - 8
- beeswax sheets
- candle wick
- Cut a length of the wick that is slightly longer than the beeswax sheet. Place one wick at one end of the beeswax for a Shabbat candle, or three wicks to for a customary Havdalah candle.
- Roll the beeswax around the wicks, gently pressing the wax to itself as you roll. You can cut the beeswax sheet into a triangle for a tapered look (the candle will get wider at the base).
- Try cutting small shapes out of leftover beeswax to create a design on your finished candle. Simply press scraps of wax onto the finished candle.
