Play Candles

CRAFTS, KID, MAKE

My kids are obsessed with imagination cooking/baking and helping me in the kitchen. One of my toddler’s most frequent requests… candles. She wants to put a candle on everything or maybe every game to her needs to involve cake. She wants to put them on play-dough cakes or in a pile of uncooked rice and beans on the counter (also faux cakes).

I don’t like giving my toddler real candles to use… she has a baby sister. I’d imagine my baby would end up with a face full of wax and wicks. Even my toddler would probably decide breaking a candle into bits might be fun along the way.

My solution, make play candles out of straws and Post-its. Making the play candles is a fun activity for them too!
