Day 2 of the Inspired Family: Kid Drawn Votive Candle Holder "Covers"
I see it in my kids' eyes when they know what they did (made, created or action) is appreciated. Valued. With such crazy fast paced days it's easy to forget to let our kids know just how much we value what they do.
That's why I like this project. Following the simple directions on Herz Allerliebst(use Google Translate) use baking parchment paper to create votive candle drawings and see your kids -- and their drawings -- light up when the candle is burning. Placing the votives on the dining table gives place and meaning, certainly giving value to what your child created! [And of course follow all safety precautions as even though it's baking parchment, it could cause a flame]
