Easy-peasy Hanukkah crafts for kids
Amber of Kids Craft Weekly has a wonderful newletter dedicated to easy-peasy Hanukkah crafts Perfect for your mini-Maccabees. The best part is these projects can all be made with a little creative household supply hunting.
My 5 year old tried her hand at making the macaroni menorah. It's absolutely adorable. And my 12 year old enjoyed crafting the "Hanukkah Activity Envelopes." There's no way we'd pass up the chance to munch on a Toblerone. I love Amber's idea of filling the activity envelopes with special Hanukkah family activities. Some suggested activities include; creating a Hanukkah picture or cards, family dreidel game night, family trip to the movies, giving to a charity, dress up in fancy clothes for dinner, make sufganiyot (or latkes). What a wonderful way to make magical family traditions and guaranteeing a memorable/meaningful Hanukkah. Put the festive in your Festival of Lights.
