Christmas Candle Carousel
What you get
Get into the holiday spirit with STEAM! Harness the power of aerodynamics to build your very own spinning Christmas candle carousel. Explore how the candles in your carousel are for more than just show — they also heat up the air around them, causing it to rise in a gust of wind that spins the whole carousel around! Then discover the history, culture, and technology behind these de-light -ful decorations.

It was a good balance of ease to assemble and following directions. My kids loved having it on the table every night and lighting the candles!

My grand daughter loved this carousel so much! This was a great bonding experience with her. The materials are so sturdy and exceeded our expectations. The directions were clear and this will be a decoration that we will enjoy for years and remember the fun we had creating it and learning about the science involved in it. Thank you for creating such a wonderful educational product.
