I love having family traditions around the Holidays and making Hanukkah crafts with my son brings me so much joy. Especially for little children, art and craft activities are a great way to connect with the story of Hanukkah. Bonding time with the parent is another added advantage for setting up such Hanukkah activities for children.
Here are my favorite easy Hanukkah crafts for kids of all ages.
EASY HANUKKAH CRAFTS FOR KIDS ALL AGES
These Hanukkah crafts are simple, low-prep, and perfect as decorations too.
Dreidel is a 4 sided spinning toy that is played with during Hanukkah. Spinning the dreidel is a traditional game that is played during the Hanukkah festival. Here is how you play the game.
Dreidel crafts are therefore a popular Hanukkah craft that is used in decorations for the house.
The main highlight of Hanukkah is the lighting of the Hanukkiah, a candelabra with nine branches.
What better way to celebrate the festival with little children than to make DIY menorahs as a craft activity.
Star Of David Crafts
Alongside the dreidels and menorah crafts we also add some Star of David garlands or hangings in our Hanukkah decorations at home.
Making such Hanukkah crafts with your children is a simple way to bring in some festive cheer, talk about the Hanukkah story and prepare for Hanukkah as a family.
If you are planning a Hanukkah get-together at home this year, check this blog post of mine where I compiled some of the best Hanukkah recipes you can make for hosting a dinner.
I hope your children enjoy making these crafts as much as we do.
