Lighting a candle is a special way to observe the "rhythm of the day," and is often used in Waldorf education. Lighting a candle at meal time, story time, or bedtime, and gently snuffing it out afterwards does much to establish a mood of reverence and gratitude, and mark the transitions of the day.
This gracefully-shaped Mini Brass Candle Snuffer allows one to gently snuff a candle while keeping one's hand away from the flame.
Here's a little verse to say with children when lighting a candle:
Fire spirits, fire sprites, Share with us your golden light. Come for us our candle light.
Once you have snuffed the candle, watch the "smoke fairies" fly away!
