Now we're going to make the wheels of the car. The way we do this is we take our tea candles, and we take four of them we make sure that there no candles inside. And the other four are going to be left with the candle inside, but we're going to take out the wick. And in the hole where the wick was we're going to poke the wooden stick straight through. And the reason why we leave the wax inside one of the metal containers is that it gives us more support for the tire. And it's a very thing aluminum so the wooden stick goes right through. So now we have a hole, and we're able to join up one container with the wax, and the other container without the wax. To give us a nice strong supported tire. So we're going to that with all the candles, take out the wick, and poke a hole through the aluminum. And now we have four pairs, one with the candle and one without the candle. The next thing we're going to do is make a little slit inside the empty metal container, the one without the wax. And that will give us a little bit of room, make it a little bit wider so that we can fit the other side, the one with the wax, directly inside. And now we have a nice round, strong, firm tire that we'll be able to attach to the car using our wooden sticks which will act as the axles. Once we joint up the pairs, remember we only have a hole on one side. So we have to go ahead and poke it through to the other side, using the hole that's already made from the opposite side. So now we have two holes, one on each side of the aluminum container. And this will enable us to slide it right on to the wooden stick, and put the bead which will act as a fastener. So that it doesn't move off of the axle. And there we have our four pairs of the candles. And this is how we make the tires for our car.
