Hanukkah Crafts and Activities: Kids’ Crafts
Every child wants to light his/her own Menorah. But nothing compares to lighting one that he or she made. Kids Activities Blog has shared how to make a menorah from egg cartons!
Mom Endeavors has shared some quick, easy Hanukkah crafts for the little ones, including some coloring pages, hand print Menorahs, and a star of David.
If your kids want to DIY their dreidel as well, What We Do All Day has made this super easy Hanukkah Dreidel craft!
Independent minded children may prefer a menorah they can light on their own, without supervision. This menorah can be made and “lit” by kids!
Your kids can definitely help you make this Chanukah wall hanging craft from Busy in Brooklyn. It’s a great way to present “Chanukah gelt” and pretty too…
These Hanukkah tissue paper suncatchers are so classic, yet so beautiful. Check it out at craftprojectideas.com.
This Hanukkah craft for toddlers is easy and fun for older kids as well! Thanks to Melissa & Doug’s blog for the inspiration.
