At lunch in my class, many students and I have been bringing oranges to eat. Nine year olds delight in trying to peel an orange in a single strip or to pull off half of it to make a miniature boat or bowl. I remembered this post from Apartment Therapy and decided to give it a go. Click the post link for instructions in making a clementine candle. My finished product did not look nearly as nice as the one above, as I was most tearing the peel to experiment. Still, it was pretty exciting for us all. You just need an orange, olive oil, and a match.
Note: The original post is from Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, the site's founder. He used to be a Waldorf teacher (like I am), and cites a visit to a former student's home as the inspiration for this candle.
