Egg yolk candles

Light up your home with these egg yolk candles.

You'll need:

white candle wax 
tiny floating yellow tea light


1. Carefully break off the top of the narrower end of an egg and empty out the insides over a bowl. (You can set aside and save the insides for some after-craft baking).

2. Gently break away the edges to make the opening wider, leaving about two thirds of the egg in tact. Wash out the egg with warm water and let dry.

3. Sit dry egg shells in an empty egg carton with the opening facing up.

4. Help your child melt white candle wax and pour into each egg shell, filling it about one third of the way up.

5. When the white wax is starting to cool, but while it is still soft, drop a small yellow tealight into the centre and let it sink slowly into the white wax making the “yolk”.

6. Let cool.
