These festive candle holders will enhance any holiday celebration!

This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 3rd grade / 4 - 8 years

You will need:


  1. Explain to students that they will be making tea light candle holders for Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa.
  2. Provide each student with a baby food jar. Then, invite students to look through the collection of greeting cards and select a picture to use to represent the holiday of their choice.
  3. Have students cut out their pictures and glue them onto the outside of their baby food jars. (Note: Younger students may need more assistance with this step.)
  4. Help students wrap a rubber band securely around the jar to hold the picture in place while the glue dries.
  5. After the picture has dried, remove the rubber band and have students apply Roll-On Confetti Glue to the portion of the outside of the baby food jar that is not covered by the picture.
  6. Have students tie a length of curling ribbon around the rim of the jar! Then, encourage them to take their candle holders home and ask parents to place a small tea light candle inside to use for the holiday season.
