Thought it would be a cool thing to do over zoom as an alternative to playing games, with the kids.

Any tips?

It sucks. Expecting some yankee candle type shit and getting a jar of plain ass wax that barely smells.

To answer the original question, I used to take bits of old candles and melt them into a soda can with a new wick. Pretty straightforward. :dunno:
Make sure you leave enough wick at top-or-bottom to light; it has to have a bit of wax in it otherwise the cotton will just burn away instead of the wax.
