Our little festival community held a Candlemas celebration today. The beautiful temperatures of yesterday continued into today and it turned into a lovely celebration of the return of light to our day as well as the promise of coming spring.
Our Candlemas celebration this year was a little different, although no less special, than last year's. We decided to roll candles this year to make our Candlemas candles.
Our next station was a candle decorating station with Stockmar decorating wax.
We ended up with candles filled with so much unique creativity.
The next station was a paper-candle-holder-making station.
The 4-pointed paper candle holders turned out adorably without being too complex for the children to make in a group.
Of course, we had a baby station as well, on the warm, sunny porch, filled with music and singing.
What a lovely way to kick off the week of Candlemas!
