When celebrating any holiday, what child doesn’t want to do a fun activity that they can not only create themselves, but also taste at the end? These three tasty crafts are not only a great way to introduce your little one to Hanukkah, but also great ideas to help with shapes, colors, directions, and other life-skills they will benefit from.
- Blue or Hanukkah-themed cupcake liners
- Favorite cupcake mix (add in blue food coloring for extra fun)
- Mix and bake nine cupcakes.
- Use extra cupcake liners to create the menorah by either just lining them up or gluing them in the shape so they stay.
- When cupcakes are done and cool, place one at the top of the menorah and poke a candle through the top!
M&M Star of David
- Blue M&Ms (or any color… but searching for the blue ones could be a fun way to work on colors with your little one)
- Parchment paper and pan
- For extra festivity, blue or fun sprinkles can be added.
- Place parchment paper in a pan.
- Make two triangles out of M&Ms with your child to create the Star of David shape – make sure the M&Ms are touching when placed.
- Put pan into oven until the chocolate is slightly melted.
- Sprinkle on some festive sprinkles and place in the fridge or freezer until cool and perfectly shaped!
Marshmallow and Candy Cane Dreidels
- Large marshmallows
- Small or medium-sized candy canes
- Hershey Kiss
- Melted chocolate and blue sprinkles for extra fun
- Poke the marshmallow through the candy cane, but keep it at the end of it.
- Scratch the bottom of the marshmallow so it begins to get sticky
- Stick the Hershey Kiss at the end of the marshmallow
- If you’re feeling extra festive, role the dreidel through melted chocolate and blue sprinkles!
