How can your kids make funky, practical art while learning all about everyone's favorite insects? Beeswax Candles & Bee-havior spreads the word about the little honeymakers and includes five brightly colored, 8-inch-by-8-inch sheets of their finest wax, ready for candle-making. The instructions are clear and simple while leaving room for creativity; the only parental supervision needed is in cutting the wicks (and lighting the finished products, of course--beeswax burns hot!). --Rob Lightner

Beeswax is a wonderful craft item. It is long burning, smokeless, and has a gentle, natural fragrance. This kit will only provide enough wax for one large candle or a very few small ones. Personally, I prefer the large candle as it lasts longer. The instructions are clearly written and allow plenty of room for a kids creativity to caome out. As for the information about bees, there is a sheet of basic facts and 4 recipes. Frankly, if your goal is to learn about bees, a better investment would be an age appropriate book. This would make a good gift paired with a book like The Magic Schoolbus Inside a Beehive or an insect identification guide.

I bought this for my 6-yr old boy's birthday. After a few minutes of my explaining the basic concept (wrap the wax around the wick) he quickly made several really neat candles. I have two other boys, 7-1/2 & 9, who loved it, and I'm planning to buy more. They all had so many ideas of how to make the candles--combines art with fire -- great combination! The candles burn clean and have a pleasant smell.
However, I'd love to find a cheaper source of colored beeswax. I can see this being a continuous source of enjoyment, and a great Bday present for other kids.
I don't recall learning much about bees from this kit, but I didn't read the couple of scraps of paper very thoroughly.

While I didn't get one for myself, I did give one to a dear aunt and her family and one to a dear friend in CA and they both love them. I have made my own beeswax candles and should buy one for myself. My friend liked learning about the bees and my Aunt Beverly said that they burned nicely.

I always thought that you should buy candles until I got this wonderful gift. I'm so glad that I got this. I opened it right away, and found out that it was the greatest candle I've ever seen once I made one. I only had enough wax to make five more by the end of the day because I loved it so much. I finished it off the next day, and was thinking about getting another set.

Looking at the other reviews, the only thing I can recommend is that if the kit has been sitting around and is hardened, you might want to warm it just a bit to make the wax plyable. Hardened, cold wax is going to break if you bend it. Beeswax is more plyable than others, BUT . . like I said, warming stiff wax will make it flexible . . but do not melt it.

This stuff is great.
