    Blow Out the Candle!
    By Joy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have heard that some teachers make a giant candle on the wall of their classrooms. The giant candle can be made with sheets of construction or metallic paper. Each child is given a portion of the candle. The August or September birthdays should be at the top of the candle near the flame. As each child's birthday arrives the flame is removed and the child keeps his/her part of the candle. On the back of the candle piece, each classmate can write a special birthday message to the student. The teacher can then attach a birthday certificate and a treat or prize. At the end of the day, the birthday child places the flame back on the candle until the next birthday.
