|Make a Hanukkah Menorah Craft out of Paper Products|
Teach your child about the symbolic meaning behind the Hanukkah Menorah while creating one out of everyday paper products.
Classified: Medium and is great for preschool aged children and up!
What you need:
- 1 Dinner paper plate
- 1 paper bowl
- 1 toilet paper roll
- 9 popsicle sticks
- Yellow tissue paper
- White and various colors of paint
What to do:
Prep: To construct the Hanukkah Menorah out of paper products, you first need to cut a hole in the center of the paper bowl. Use the toilet paper tube as your guide as you will fitting it into the hole. Cut the paper plate in half and glue the two sides together. Cut it out to look as though there are 9 candle holders. To assemble: Place the toilet paper roll inside the hole on the bowl and glue together. Cut two slits on either side of the top of the toilet paper tube and slide in the paper plate (candle holders facing up). Glue together. Allow to dry.
1. Have your child paint the menorah their desired color. Talk about typical Hanukkah Menorah colors and encourage them to chose either silver or gold.
2. Paint the 9 Popsicle sticks white. Tear some sheets of yellow tissue paper and glue to the top of the wooden "candles." Allow all pieces to dry.
3. Glue into place the 9 candles- or celebrate Hanukkah by "lighting" (gluing) one candle in at a time from left to right.
