This can be done any time of year- just change the prayer/s that are attached to the candle. The advantage of this craft is that the time utilized can vary depending on the amount of preparation you have done, and thus the age range for this craft is great. Older children can do all of it, from selecting the prayer on the computer and downloading and printing, through to the end, to a very small child only pasting the prayer on the candle!
