Who Says Kids and Candles Can’t Go Together?
As parents, we normally steer our children away from candles for safety purposes, right?
Kalamazoo Candle Company offers their very own Kids’ Day Out, a weekly drop-in candle making class for kids. No reservations required. Simply walk in anytime between 10:00 – noon or 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM every Tuesday and make your own unique wax creation.
Your candle is your very own masterpiece. Select a fragrance or combine multiple fragrances to make the perfect scent. This creative process will even involve making your own custom label to fit the 6oz candle tin.
We love the burning time on the 6oz size tins – they are guaranteed to burn for at least 30 hours.
Ready to Make Candles?
When: Every Tuesday from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM or 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM. Drop-in sessions are for kids ages 3-12, with an adult.
Drop-in Session: Safety goggles are provided and parental assistance is required to supervise the use of equipment. Wax will be cooled down and completely safe to touch.
Note: candles take about 40 minutes to cool. This provides a great opportunity to shop around Marketplace or grab a bite to eat or shop the local stores on the Kalamazoo Mall. Or, completed candles can be picked up within one to two business days.
Location: Kalamazoo Candle Company Marketplace, located at 166 S. Kalamazoo Mall
Cost: Drop-in class $10 per candle (6oz tins only)
A perfect outing awaits. The candles make great personalized gifts for teachers, parents or grandparents. Or, keep one for yourself and have fun making it!
