Sparkly battery-candle holder
15 minute Craft planner
Beware of allergies – make sure it is safe for the children in your group to handle the ingredients used in these activities.
You will need:
Glitter of various colours
PVA glue, brushes and pots or an ice cube tray
Craft lollipop sticks
Shop-bought clay or homemade air drying clay (see Printables)
Battery tea light
How to prepare:
Before the session make a sample sparkly battery- holder so that the children know what they are making.
How to make:
1. Mould the clay into the shape of a large pebble or roll it until it is flat, but remains at least an inch thick.
2. Press the base of the tea light into the clay then remove it. An impression should be left large enough for a tea light to fit in once the clay has dried.
3. Score a pattern into the clay using a craft lollipop stick. The impressions need to be shallow, but at least a couple of millimetres wide. Mix the glitter into the PVA glue. Carefully fill the impressions in the clay with the glitter glue.
4. Leave your clay somewhere safe to dry. N.B. Models made with air drying clay will take two to seven days to dry.
Remind the children that light flashed around Saul on the road to Damascus.
