3 Hanukkah Crafts Kids Can Make and Taste

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.

Cupcake Menorah


  • Blue or Hanukkah-themed cupcake liners
  • Favorite cupcake mix (add in blue food coloring for extra fun)
  • Candles


  • 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!
