We actually cut each big square in four and made 4 medium candles out of each sheet, my 4 kids love it and can hardly wait to make more for Shabbat or for gifts !!
This kit was a gift for my 7 year old daughter. The day after Christmas, she pulled the kit out and asked for help to get started. I helped her roll the first candle (perhaps 10 minutes), and she was able to work independently after that, proudly showing off her creations. By looking up ideas online, she enjoyed making stripes, polka dots, and swirls on her candles. She was easily able to cut the wax sheets herself with a kitchen knife, a cutting board, and a ruler. We lit the candles at dinner, and they burn beautifully. It's a 5-star activity, that I cut down to 4 stars only because the fun was over in a single day. I wonder if double the wax sheets and wicks could be included without doubling the price. Then I couldn't help but give 5 stars. This is a wonderful activity that produces a household item of useful beauty.
