The Best Hanukkah Activities for Kids!

Although, I and my family celebrate Christmas, this year I had a lot of requests to share some Hanukkah activities and crafts.

A little known fact about me, my father-in-law was Jewish and we do always include a small Hanukkah celebration during our Christmas celebrations when I get together with my in-laws. Some years the kids play with dreidel toys and we always have latkes during our Christmas dinner.

This year I decided to include a few Hanukkah activities along with our Christmas ones. This year we made a Menorah using craft sticks and yarn that I just loved how it turned out! I am really excited to share that one with you. I have been inspired by yarn recently, so I have a few yarn crafts coming soon to the blog that I hope you will enjoy as well.

How do you celebrate the holiday season?
