This year, I have had many requests to share ideas of Hanukkah crafts for kids to make.
Simple Hanukkah Crafts for Kids to Make
I have never shared any Hanukkah crafts before since it has always just been my family sharing the activities we do.
This is the great blessing of having a creative team of contributors. They are ready and willing to share their activities with us!
I thought it would be nice to also have a great collection for inspiration as well. Here’s some simple Hanukkah craft the kids can make.
Dreidel Crafts for Kids to Make
Below, you will find Dreidel crafts, Star of David crafts, Menorah crafts, plus some Hanukkah advent calendars for the kids to make.
Dreidels are a small spinning toy used to play a traditional Hanukkah game. You can learn how to play with the Dreidel here.
Menorah Crafts for Kids to Make
On each night of Chanukkah, one new light of the Menorah is lit.
I hope someone can help me out here and tell me about the 7 or 8 candle difference with either a Menorah or Hanukiah.
From what I read here, the Hanukiah is with 7 candles in line and the 8th is offset, whereas the Menorah has seven candles all in line.
Below are crafts of both Menorahs and Hanukiahs.
Star of David Crafts for Kids to Make
Star of David is a well-known six-pointed symbol of two triangles interlaced together. You can read about the origin and meaning of the Star of David here.
Hanukkah Advent Calendars for Kids to Make
And of course, it’s fun to count down the days of Hanukkah, so here’s some Hanukkah advent-type calendars.
