BENDABLE WAX STICKS
Making your own bendable wax craft sticks is a great activity to include in your next science themed birthday party. Your birthday party guests will be able to make a variety of bendable colored wax sticks they can use to make endless designs.
Various colors of yarn
Toilet sealant wax
Double boiler (an oven safe glass bowl inside a pot of boiling work works fine as well)
Melt the toilet wax ring and ½ blocks of paraffin wax in the double boiler.
Once the wax begins to melt, pull the plastic ring from the wax toilet sealant and discard.
Cut the yarn into roughly twelve inch pieces. You will want to make enough for each guest to have several strands of different colors.
Drop five or six pieces of yarn into the wax.
Use the tongs and pull the yarn from the wax, dragging it up the side of the double boiler to remove any excess.
Place the yarn on the wax paper to dry.
Once dry, allow the birthday party guests to enjoy.
This activity is great for an ocean or animal themed science birthday party as the guests can use the bendable wax sticks to create animals, fish, and any creature they want.
