Beeswax Candles.

They are beautiful, right?

In fact, I just got a pack with four sheets of beeswax - rollable, with a comb pattern imprinted on it, wicks included - and gave it to my kids, who were, just like every year, very enthusiastic. Miro cut tiny parts for baby candles...

...and Ronnie used every scrap and scratch from the table to melt it inside an old yogurt-glass:

And they loved, loved, loved lighting them, and playing around with the wax.

I, however, loved the thought that next year, I might not purchase beeswax, but harvest some - I´m not sure about how to clean the honeycombs, but I´m sure we´ll learn all this - Tim and I finally booked our place in apiarist´s school next year :)
