Default what to do with wax

years ago I thought I wanted to do those stuffed bears dipped in scented wax craft.I bought 2 of those large wax slabs and of course just as dh had predicted ...I never did anything with them.I have no interest in doing my initial project withe wax,and I hate to just throw it out.What could I do with it,beside candles.

It happens--buy something with every intention of wearing it or using it then _______ (fill in the blank).
Donate it to a thrift store--or a deserving PYPer. It's time for someone else to enjoy it.

Have you tried making "swiss cheese" candles? You put crushed ice in a coffee can with the melted wax and when it cools it has holes like swiss cheese. If you use orange wax it looks like cheese.

Otherwise, Check this out for wax balloon tutorial.

Could you just make some candles in jars as gifts? Or help your kids to do it.
