World Down Syndrome Day Candles

Jacob and 9 of his friends have worked hard at designing and making a candle to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day!

From choosing the jar, scent, wick and sticker to putting it all together and made these beautiful candles. The significance of the design? Blue and yellow are the colours to represent Down Syndrome. The 3 yellow hearts represent the triplication of the 21st chromosome. The hearts represent the love 💛.

This experience bonded this group even more! They supported each other through this process, sharing ideas and expanding their skills!
