Let Your Light So Shine - Candle Lesson for Kids

I made this simple object lesson for kids when planning to teach them about St. Haralambos. The story of his martyrdom is one of many many tortures, but throughout it all he was "glowing with joy" and giving thanks to God. After telling my kids the account of his martyrdom, we lit a candle and looked at the flame. Then we turned off the light and talked about how much more powerful the light is when it is shining in the darkness. Finally we dripped wax onto the printed candles and hung the pictures in the window. The light shines through the wax drippings making it sort of glow.
