Candle Making for KidsCandle Making for Kids

Arts and crafts are very important for a child to participate in. In the classrooms of today, there is a strong emphasis on the common cores of learning. Math, reading, writing, and science. Today, we will talk about candle making for kids.

However, the arts are just as important for a child’s growth as math can be. Learning about the world of creativity allows a child’s mind to develop in all kinds of directions. It’s never to early to start letting a child’s creative side take over. Simply holding a crayon, a paintbrush or a piece of chalk will start developing their motor skills. Their language will take shape as they learn words of description and colors. Decision making is also part of the creative process. “How do I want this to look?” “What color should the bird be?” Visual learning is very important because it gives the brain the freedom to explore, relax and not think of anything complex! Candle making for kids is a fun craft that lets kids explore texture, color, scents and all things creative!

Most kids love making and creating things for people they love. As a child, it was one of my favorite things to do. Nature’s Garden has some awesome recipes if you are looking for something different for the kids to explore. Creating candles with our Pillar of Bliss is a quick and simple craft for kids and parents. Not only is it safe, as there is no heating required, but you are able to let your creativity shine with designs, fragrances, and colors! If your child has ever made one of those “sand in jar” crafts, the technique is very similar.

 

Candle Making for Kids: Before You Get Started

Before you begin your creations, you will need to gather some supplies!

Candle Making for Kids: Pillar of Bliss

The type of wax that is best used in layering candles is our Pillar of Bliss. This wax is a soy/paraffin blend that is perfect for creating pillar candles or candles in molds. The wax hardens up beautifully and releases from the molds easily. It also makes wonderful layered candles! It lets you get creative without all the hassle of melting wax! Plus, it has amazing cold and hot throw!

Candle Making for Kids: Let’s Learn the Process!

Before we start on some of our favorite candle recipes, let’s talk about how the process of granulated candle making is done! As with any candle making prep, you will want to get your container ready by putting in your wicks. Which size wick do you use, you ask? Follow this link to find out the correct size! Now, simply add a drop of hot glue to the bottom of the candle wick tab and secure it to the bottom of your container, right in the middle. If the wick is to long, simply snip the excess off leaving at least 1 1/2 inch above your container.

Candle Making for Kids: Getting the Wax Ready

When it comes to layered candle making, fill each Ziploc bag with have their own color/fragrance mix. If you plan on making a lot of candles you can make your colored/scented layers in one pound batches. So let’s get your wax ready to color and scent. Using the gallon size Ziploc bags, you will weigh out your wax according to your recipe into the required number of bags. If your candle recipe calls for 6 layers, you will be using 6 bags and the wax will be divided and weighed out into each one.

Candle Making For Kids: Adding your Fragrances

As with any type of candle making, a general rule of thumb for adding fragrance oil to your wax is using 1 to 1 1/2 ounces per pound of wax. Therefore, each bag that holds 1 pound of wax will require 1 to 1 1/2 ounce of fragrance oil.

Candle Making for Kids: Adding the Color

Next, you will be adding color to each Ziploc bag. You will add the required number of drops according to your recipe, or simply add a small amount to achieve the color you wish.

Candle Making for Kids: Mixing it Up

Now that we have our wax, fragrance, and color added in, seal the bag tightly, and shake each bag, mixing the wax, fragrance and color up really well! Squeeze and squish it good! Get all that color worked in!

Candle Making for Kids: Adding the Wax to the Containers

Now that your wax is mixed up, you will start adding it to your container of choice. Simply open up your Ziploc bag a start pouring into your container. If you are layering colors, make sure you leave enough room! Always keep your wick straight when you are filling your containers. Continue adding the other colored wax layers the same way until your container is almost full.

Candle Making for Kids: Getting creative

Want to create a tie dye look? Take one of your wooden skewers and along the inside of your glass container and draw lines going down. Gently tap your container on the counter once you have drawn the lines and the colored wax from one layer will fall into these lines!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Bacon Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is incredibly simple and a good way to start kids out on the road to candle making. Bacon Candle recipe calls for Pillar of Bliss, our Spectrum Liquid Candle dye in shades of red, and of course our Bacon fragrance oil. Bacon fragrance oil? Yes, indeed! Smells just like bacon frying in a frying pan! Everything’s better with bacon, right? For this recipe, you will start off by separating the wax into 3 different Ziploc baggies, adding drops of colorant and then the Bacon fragrance. Next, your little candle maker will then massage the colors and scent it into the wax. Once that is done, simply pour the now scented/colored wax into your container, creating a layered look of bacon. This candle is perfect for younger kids to help create since there is no melting wax involved!

Candle Making for Kids Autumn Leaves Potpourri Recipe

Up next is a fun, fall recipe that requires a little bit of heat for melting. Even though this recipe is still quick and easy, some adult supervision is a requirement since some of the wax will be melted. The cute little leaves in our Autumn Leaves Potpourri recipe, are made with  Pillar of Bliss and colored with some pretty fall colors. We made these leaves with a mold from Flexiblemolds.com. These molds are durable, easy to clean up and are perfect for any candle or soap making! This particular mold is called dime sized Leaves candle and soap mold.  We scented this potpourri with our Autumn Woods fragrance oil. A lovely, fall woodsy scent of pine, citrus and cedar wood! We used 24 K Gold Mica to color the granulated part of the candle. These potpourris are so easy to make! They would make such pretty little gifts to give!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Green Camouflage Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Green Camouflage Candle Recipe

Here’s another easy recipe that the young ones can definitely help out with! This Green Camouflage Candle is made just like our Bacon Candle. You will color and scent the wax in a bag and then create layers of various greens and browns to look like the camouflage that our brave soldiers wear. The fragrance we chose for this recipe is our Fresh Outdoors. This fragrance is perfect for those that love a fresh, green fragrance! You will get floral notes of lily and jasmine, orange and ozone. Perfect for those that love the outdoors! Your kids will have fun creating camo layers so let their imagination take over!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Pink Camouflage Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Pink Camouflage Candle Recipe

Well, the boys got to make their own candle, now for the girls’ candle! Pink Camouflage Candle is made exactly like the Green Camouflage! We chose the fragrance oil NG Can Can Fragrance Oil for the ultimate girly girl, camouflage and all! This scent is floral with a touch of vanilla and musk! Your little girl will have a blast making her own candle in pretty shades of pink, red and burgundy.

Candle Making for Kids: Rainbow Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Rainbow Candle Recipe

This Rainbow Candle recipe would be fun to make when teaching kids the colors of the rainbow. This candle is truly simple to create and a definite must for the little ones to help make. Once the kids have finished squishing the color and fragrance into the wax using the Ziploc bag method, they can carefully pour their wax into the container to create a layered look of a rainbow. It couldn’t get any easier than that, right? We chose our fittingly Rainbow fragrance oil that smells like it’s just bursting with color! Yummy, sweet fruit of every kind hits your nose with one whiff!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri Recipe

Here is another potpourri recipe made like the Autumn Leaves recipe. Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri has pretty little blue snowflakes scattered throughout the glistening “snow”. Once again, we have used a mold from Flexiblemolds.com. This mold is the Mini Snowflakes candle and soap mold. We have added some Diamond Dust Mica to the granulated wax to make it shimmer and have scented the whole thing, the snowflakes and the snow, with our Jack Frost fragrance oil. The scent is a perfect wintry mix of peppermint and vanilla!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Hydrangea Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Hydrangea Candle Recipe

What could be more perfect for spring or summer than our Hydrangea Candle Recipe? Hydrangeas are bushes that bloom beautiful hues of blues, purples and sometimes greens. We created the pattern to mimic the puffy blossoms of the hydrangea. The finishing touch is some cute little embed butterflies (because butterflies are attracted to hydrangeas). Of course, we scented this creation with our Hydrangea Heaven! This fragrance oil is a beautiful, soft floral scent that is perfect in candles and in soap making!

Candle Making for Kids: A Final Note

Making granulated candles are great for fundraisers! Use your school’s colors and get a copy of the mascot artwork. You can create a label with the mascot and school name then adhere to the front of your containers. If you have a special charity event that you are donating too, how about creating candles in the colors of the charity? Pink and white for Breast Cancer Awareness, purple for Cystic Fibrosis or red, white and blue for patriotism. There are so many options! You are only limited by your imagination!

We hope you enjoyed reading about all the fun candles kids can help create. Candle making in itself can seem daunting to anybody who has never made candles in their life. So, if you are a first timer, these recipes are perfect for you! Learning the steps, and the process of candle making is easy and these recipes can help you get started on a fun new hobby! Don’t forget the kids though! Helping kids develop through arts and crafts is an important part of growing and learning! We are sure they will enjoy making candles and memories just as much as you!

Magic Potion Fragrance OilMagic Potion Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Magic Potion Fragrance Oil is a fruity scent by Natures Garden. This aroma is a fruit blend that creates a delicious and sweet concoction that is perfect for a variety of products. This fragrance oil is quite possibly one of the most unique grapefruit scents I have ever used. My niece and I made a gift basket for her best friend’s birthday. Of course we scented everything, her friend absolutely loved it. Personally, my favorite application for this one, the homemade bath fizzies.  We created layered bath bombs using Nature’s Garden ultramarine violet and neon orange FUN Soap Colorants. They were absolutely adorable! However, this citrus aroma also smells wonderful in the shea butter melt and pour soap base. We also added lotion from scratch and a body spray, using odor eliminator.

Now, it is time to begin creating your candle.  We suggest using disposable spoons for this.  We will simply be layering the wax to create a bacon like look.  Start with the uncolored Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Place the wax along the bottom of the jar.  You will want to make a thin line of uncolored, bacon scented wax.  Directly on top of the uncolored wax, place a layer of the light pink wax.  On top of the light pink granulated wax, place a thin layer of the dark red wax.  Continue layering the wax until your jar is completely full.  Be careful when filling your jar.  You want to make sure the wicks remain centered as you fill the candle container.  Once you have filled the jar, use a pencil to curl the candle wicks.
