Need: White paper, white crayon, blue paint

Directions: Using a white crayon and a dreidel template, trace the dreidel shape with white crayon on white construction paper. Then paint over the shape with watered-down blue tempera paint. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle on gold or blue glitter. When dry shake off any excess glitter.


Candlelight and Menorah added 11-19-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: Paper, paint, sponges, glue, scissors, tissue paper

Cardboard Tube Menorah added 12-17-01 Original Author Unknown
 
Need: 9 cardboard tubes, tape, markers, long piece of cardboard, red - orange and yellow tissue paper

Directions: Cut 1/2 inch off of 8 of the tubes. Either cover the 9 tubes with construction paper, paint them, or color with markers. Feel free to decorate tubes with glitter and markers, you can also draw a Star of David on the center tube. Try to use blues and silver to decorate the tubes. Now, place the taller tube in the middle and 4 shorter ones on each side. Tape together and glue to the long piece of cardboard (you can also stick them into a piece of foam). Decorate the base to match. Tear apart the tissue paper and insert various colors (red, orange, yellow) into the top of each tube to represent the flame of a candle.

Marshmallow Menorahs added 12-2-02 Original Author Unknown

Need: Marshmallows, tagboard, birthday candles, frosting

Directions: Let children make a menorah using frosting and marshmallows. Give each child a piece of tagboard 11" x 4" (28cm x 10cm), ten marshmallows, and nine candles. Have the children spread some white frosting on the bottom of each marshmallow and then put them onto the tagboard. With the Frosting, "glue" a second
marshmallow on top of the middle marshmallow to create the shammash or
"servant." Poke birthday candles into each marshmallow to create a menorah.


Hanukkah Chains added 11-18-03 Original Author Unknown

Need:
Blue and White paper, scissors, glue or tape

Directions: Cut out or have the children cut 8 rectangular paper pieces, 4 blue and 4
white.  Then connect them to make a paper chain and the idea is to have them remove one link on each day so they know how many days are left.


Yarn Art Star added 11-18-03 Original Author Unknown

Need: flexible dinner sized paper plate, yarn, crayons, tape, hole punch

Directions: Punch evenly spaced holes about 1" from the outside edge of he plate.  Cut 6 slits about 3" in toward the center.  Put slits halfway between holes. To make the small start you'll connect the slits.  Begin by taping one end of a long piece of yarn to the back of the plate.  String the yarn through a slit and across the plate to the next slit.  When the star is complete, tape the back of the slits. You'll connect the holes to from the large Star of David. Finish by taping the other end of the yarn to the plate's back and make a hanger.


Gelt Bank added 11-28-06 Original Author Unknown

Need: Empty can with a plastic lid, paper, glue, markers, and other collage materials.

Directions: Select an empty can with straight sides and a plastic lid, such as a nut can or a frosting can. Cut a piece of paper to fit around the can and let your child decorate it as desired. Glue or tape her paper around the outside of the can, and cut a slit in the plastic lid. Over the eight days of Hanukkah, let your child drop spare change into the bank. At the end of the holiday, donate the money to a favorite charity.
