The absolute easiest is to find candle wax that comes in little chips or beads, pour it into a suitable container, then add a wick. These items are available at craft shops.

Craft shops have lots of candle-making supplies, so you can pick the ones with the easiest instructions. That's how I found out about the wax beads.

Did this for vacation Bible School - buy the block wax. Chip it up a bit and then put in an old camping coffee pot. Put that pot in a larger pot of hot water. We used an electric skillet with about 1 inch of water in it. We used pint milk cartons, made intentions in sand, paper cups (all sizes- you then peel away the paper. We used the prepared wicks with little metal tabs on bottom, just put in the "container" and slowly pour the wax. Use crayons bits to color, fun and easy for the kids! With supervision!
