Candle treats l.jpg
Candle Treats

  • Take your toilet paper roll and lay it down on your

    construction paper. Use a ruler to draw a line on the

    paper for the width of the paper roll. Use your scissors to cut along the line that you drew, Lay the Paper Roll down on the edge of the construction paper. Tape one of the ends of the construction paper to the Paper Roll, then carefully roll the Paper Roll until you get to the end of the construction paper. When the construction paper is all the way around the Paper Roll, put a piece of tape to hold the paper together. You can also glue the paper down


Slide13 l.jpg

the Paper Roll, put a piece of tape to hold the paper together.

You can also glue the paper down instead of using tape. If you

do this, put a rubber band around the Paper Roll, and allow time

for this step to dry. Cut two squares of tissue...one of the yellow

color and one of the orange tissue paper. I use a nice sized square

here so my candle flame is nice and large. Also remember when

making this part of the candle, most of the tissue will be inside

of the paper roll…so be generous with it's size. Lay the tissue

down, one piece on top of the other. If you angle it like the

sample here to your left, both colors of the tissue will show

nicely in your finished project. Use a spoon to gently push the

tissue into the Paper Roll. Don't push too hard or the tissue may

rip. Once the tissue is in the Paper Roll... add your treats. This

can be little toys, candy, or


Slide14 l.jpg

anything you would like to give the children for treats. together.

Once your treats have been added... tie off the end. Here we've used green

string... but that is only so you can see where we added the tie. With your fingers... work

up the tissue to form a tip to make it look like a candle flame.

Make as many candles as there are for your celebration...

at least one candle per child. These can be set up to be part

of your decorations.
