Loads of fun for everyone
We all know that kids love being creative and it’s important we harness this by introducing them to new and different things that they can make with their hands. This helps them to develop coordination, communication and thinking skills, not to mention having a ball of fun at the same time.
Our cande making kits make a brilliant kids craft idea and are great for not only entertaining the kids, but also to encourage learning and development skills. And the kids love to make candles as its something different and they look great!
With coloured sand wax, anyone can create amazing candle designs. Just look at all the great designs we have made in a matter of minutes.
You will be amazed at how simple it is to create these stunning candles. Simply place the wick inside the glass votives, and pour the coloured sand in to create coloured layers, diagonal effects, rainbows and lots more. The only limit is your imagination. Each candle will burn for up to 8 hours.
And the great thing is, there is no requirement to melt hot wax or use electrical equipment making it a perfect kids craft activity. The wax is also 100% natural palm wax, making them great for the environment and your family’s health. A perfect activity for kids as young as 3 years.

Here’s what you have said about our Kid’s Rainbow Candle Making Kits:
“Just wanted to say thanks for your help & speedy service with the kids candle kits & beeswax that I purchased last week. We held our camp with the Junior Guides over the weekend and the candle making activity was an overwhelming favourite. My 15yr old daughter even made comment that she would like the kids candle kits for her next birthday party! I’ll be sure to pass on your details to all my guiding friends as they were very user friendly” Sue-Ellen
“My daughter’s 10th birthday party was yesterday and all the girls (all 25 of them) had a blast making the candles. It was very novel for them, as no-one had made candles before, so they were very keen to get into it! I also purchased some stickers for them to decorate the outside of the glass from a craft shop, and with the beautiful colours of the wax behind the stickers the candles turned out fantastically!! All the girls were very happy with their efforts, and it made for a great party! Thanks again for a great product. No doubt I’ll be ordering again next year for my younger daughter’s birthday party!” Belinda
“I received my kids candle making kit today and I could smell the candles through the box..and when I opened it up it was even better..yummy..it was so much fun, my 3 yr old helped and had so much fun with them asking lots of questions and getting involved..I think it is a great idea..and great present idea…they looked amazing and now they are up on the Buffet..making the house smell yummo!! Thanks for the opportunity to trial this amazing item. Will have to let the kindy people know about it..” Jennie
“Love these! Jess and I made the candles today and had awesome fun. The smell was great, almost overpowering, but once made the smell dissapates and makes the room smell nice, not overpowering. Rather than using funnels to pour in the was sand, I cut the corners off the snap lock bags and poured them in that way. A few spills, but we put down a tray, so no problems. It’s facinating to watch the wax sand melt into a puddle of wax. I love the idea as a a party favour, but would need to find a way to seal the top so it does not spill when travelling. A great fun quick craft that we both had fun doing” Melita
“As soon as I opened the parcel the smell was amazing. The colours of the wax sand matched the scents and it was delicious.. The kit came with very clear instructions and step by step photos. The process was simple. My sons and their cousin loved making their candles and they had fun smelling the waxes and creating their own candles. It did get quite noisy and active at times! A great idea for a party or even to give as gifts. Will be passing on my cards to possible future candidates” Trish
“I recently had my 8 year old daughter and 3 year old niece make the candles at home. We had a great time. The candles were colourful and we were able to make some nice patterns using sticks to move the wax sand around on the sides of the glass. The colours are wonderfully pastel so appealing and it didn’t matter if the colours mixed on one candle. It didn’t look a mess at all. The smells from the wax were amazing before and after burning the wick. The instructions were very good and easy to understand with photos! The candles are probably better for kids 5+ (I’d say over 6 or 7) as my niece needed a lot of help pouring. There was more than enough wax sand for the 6 glasses. We burnt the candles a bit when done so the sand would settle and not spill. The candles still looked pretty and have been placed in prominent spots at home. My sister-in-law was very impressed with the results of the candles her little girl made” Alicia
“My daughter (9) was so excited when we received our candles on Friday. The first thing that I noticed when I opened the box was the lovely fragrance and that the items were packed really well. We received – 6 glass jars, wicks, sticky pads, warning labels, 5 different waxes and instructions. All the waxes all had a very nice fragrance but the favourite was Blueberry Cupcake. My daughter had a great time making her candles she especially liked the fact that she could do everything herself by following the very clear instructions included. The only thing we needed to supply ourselves was a funnel to pour the wax into the jars. I really enjoyed sitting back and watching her experiment with the colours and trying out different effects. She made three today - First one she used 2 alternate colours and topped with another. The second one she used a little of each colour then inserted a skewer down the edge to mix the colours. The third she did two alternate colours on a tilt and topped with another colour. These are really good product and I highly recommended them. Great to keep in the craft box for rainy day – they would make nice little gifts. They would also make great party items for the kids to make and take home as they are suitable for both boys and girls. I also love the idea that you can just buy more wax and reuse your jars” Kidspot Review
“My 6 year old daughter and her friend could not have had more fun!! They discussed initially for half an hour what colour scheme they were going to create and then carefully followed the instructions to make their very first candle. They were so impressed with themselves that they squealed with delight when they found out the kit came with 3 candles each!!! There was more discussion, more careful preparation, and then the finished product which looked fantastic. Amazing fun was had by all! Great value, excellent kids craft activity and I would definitely purchase again :)” Rebecca
“I ordered this new product from Kaycie for my daughters 3rd birthday party. She had a great time with her friends making these candles. It was such as great kids craft idea as they got to take something home that they made and were proud of :)” Felicity
