This week we headed to Museum Village to check out life in the 19th Century. You can see my post about guinea hens here.
We learned how candles were made and the kids even got to dip their own. They dipped two. One for them to keep and another to start the process for the next class who would get the demonstration.
There were three pass throughs with the kids forming a circle and just walking and dunking. The candles are very tiny but the kids loved making them.
The kids learned that the first candles were made with animal fat and eventually paraffin which was passed around for them to feel. Goddess loved it so much we are purchasing our first candle making beginner kit
It was a great time and we learned so much!
