Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
one metal bottle cap
small candle wicking
ice pick (hole punchey thingy)
Step 2: Poke Hole
put a hole just big enough for the wick in the bottom of the lid, then cut a tiny piece of wick.
Step 3: Bend and Tape
poke the wick through the hole, leaving a little bit at the bottom, bend that over and tape it, (the tape keeps the vaseline from leaking through)
Step 4: Fill It Up
fill the bottle cap with vaseline (don't worry bout burying the wick) grab a knife and dig out the wick.
Use a lighter to melt the vaseline smooth. And your done! took about 2 minutes once I got the materials together.
added plus, this is a great thing to with kids (no hot melted wax to pour)
Step 5: Use It
you can use these as flaoting candles or pretty much whatever (I don;t know how long these will burn, but you can reuse the bottle cap)
