Hanukkah Craft Ideas

Hanukkah is one of the ancient festivals which anecdotes the story of victory of Jews over Syrian Greeks. Just like other festivals, Hanukkah brings the family together to celebrate the festival. Above this, small things make further difference like making Hanukkah Crafts tie people close to the essence of the Jewish culture and each other. Craft for Hanukkah are activities that are delicate, engrossing, and private.

DGreetings offers a wide collection of Hanukkah Craft Ideas:

Clay Menorahs

Material Required

  • Craft sticks,
  • Clay (one that will air dry),
  • A pencil,
  • Birthday candles
  • Birthday candle holders

Firstly knead and flatten the clay. Then outline or trace your hands with the clay using a craft stick. After taking your two clay clad hands, overlap the thumbs and press the hands together. Now place the clay hands up so that fingers are facing upwards towards the ceiling. Then take your pencil and create a hole at the top of each fingerprint. Put small birthday candle holders in holes in the tops of the clay fingerprints. So, there will be eight fingerprints for eight candles- for every night of Hanukkah (as Hanukkah is an eight day celebration). When the menorah dries up you can paint the menorah if you want.

Clay Menorahs



Materials Required

  • Masking tape
  • 1 small, single size paper milk carton
  • Kitchen knife
  • Acrylic paint
  • Glitter pen or white craft glue and loose glitter
  • 1 Popsicle stick

Firstly wash thoroughly the empty milk carton container. Dry it with a kitchen towel. Shut the opening of the container with a small piece of masking tape. Using a kitchen knife cut a small incision just to let the Popsicle stick into the bottom centre of the milk carton. Paint the entire milk carton with the color of your choice. If the paint looks streaky, paint another coat. Wait till the paint is completely dry and then write the letters Nun, Gimel, Hay and Shin with glitter pens or craft glue and loose glitter to the four sides of the dreidel, one letter on each side.
