How to Make an Ice Candle With Your Kids By: Name Have you been looking for a fun and creative craft to do with your kids? Making ice candles just might be the perfect solution. Children will love this hands-on craft that is easy to learn. They can be creative with the colors they choose, with every candle turning out different from the next.

It is best to make these candles in a place that can get a little messy, such as a garage.
