One of our Brave Moms mentioned the power of candles to calm the atmosphere and induce her children to copywork. Her post on Scratch Pad reminded me of the power of candles in the homeschool!

We’ve used them in the following three ways:

  • For copywork (light one in the middle of the table)
  • For teatime (several tea lights look gorgeous with teatime)
  • For quiet hour (I used to light a candle in the living room for half an hour of quiet reading every day. The whole house had to be quiet until I blew out the candle.)

Candles soothe children and adults alike. Let us know any other creative uses for candles in the homeschool!
