Download Activity Guide
Get into the spirit for the 2022 Winter Games with your own handmade glowing torch!
  • Step 1Paint a cardboard roll using gold acrylic paint. Allow to dry. Apply a second coat and allow to dry.
  • Step 2Apply glue to the rim of one end of the painted cardboard roll. Flatten out a red patty pan and place the bottom of the patty pan on top of the roll. Press to ensure the glue sticks and hold for a few seconds. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Apply glue to the inside of the patty pan and place a second patty pan inside the first. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Take a sheet of yellow and orange tissue paper and cut them both in half along the long edge, then cut both in half again. Place two pieces of tissue paper (one yellow and one orange) on top of each other. Poke through the centre of the sheets with your thumb and the palm of your hand so the ends stick up as shown. Glue the bottom part of the tissue paper to the patty pan. Allow to dry.
  • Step 5Place a glue dot on the bottom of an LED tealight. Turn on the tealight and place in the centre of the yellow tissue paper. Gather the tissue paper to cover the tealight.
  • CleverTip: If you want to turn the tealight on and off, don’t attach any glue dots. However, you will need to hold the torch upright so that the light doesn’t fall out!
  • Step 6Your Tealight Torch is now ready to use!
