I've had a bag full of beeswax chips in the cupboard for years. We tried dipping our own candles with the older two when Kiki was a few weeks old and Googs was a toddler...it didn't work out so well as they were very demanding and this project requires some time.

And then it's just a case of dipping once and let cool
