Draw on wax paper with permanent markers, wrap around candle and heat until image is transferred. It would be great to do this for Mother's Day, or Teacher Appreciation Day - have kids draw on wax paper and give her a personalized candle.
birthday centerpiece idea -- tie balloons on top--fill with any candy. let kids guess on paper how many pieces of candy are in the jar. one who is closest gets the jar at the end. Could work as table numbers/center pieces too!
