Holidays are a great opportunity to use crafts to teach our children about the true meaning behind the holiday and to pass down traditions. Our Hanukkah crafts can be used to do both. There is so much history behind the crafts children can make for Hanukkah and they are sure to understand and appreciate the traditions more by learning hands-on. As always, these crafts were all made in our own home, so we can be sure that they are fun and simple to do in yours! Happy Hanukkah!
Helping your child make our handprint Menorah craft is a great way to get them excited for the upcoming holiday.

The Star of David is a symbol of Judaism and has a strong place in Jewish holiday tradition. Our simple popsicle stick Star of David craft is easy enough even for very young children to do.

Enjoy this simple and meaningful Hanukkah craft for kids.
Hanukkah is often called the Festival of Light and the main symbol for the holiday is the Menorah. There is much tradition that goes into the lighting of the Menorah and now your children will have the chance to make one of their very own with our Hanukkah Menorah craft. This craft uses some materials that may be new to your kids which helps keep the project fun and interesting.
