INSIDE: Yarn wrapped Menorah Craft is an adorable way to create a Hanukkah decor with your kids this Hanukkah!! It makes a wonderful fine motor activity for preschoolers and older kids and creates a beautiful piece of art that your kids can display in their room or gift to a friend or grandparent.
Beautiful Hanukkah Art
This wonderful craft is a great for the holiday this year. All you will need is come colourful yarn. I used yarn in multi colours that that I wouldn’t have to use more than one roll. Multi-coloure yarn is great way to get lots of different colours on your craft stick candles. Each candle will have a unique pattern of its own!
Yarn Wrapped Menorah Craft
Grab nine craft sticks and some colourful yarn and start wrapping it around the craft sticks. Let your little one wrap as much or as little yarn as they want. But suggest to them that they can make each candle look different with different patterns. Have them wrap the yarn from top to bottom. Secure the ends of the yarn by tucking them in.
Do the same for three additional craft sticks. They can use a different colour for these three sticks such as blue or yellow.
Grab a piece of cardboard or cardstock as well as your craft glue. You can also use a hot glue gun to secure the craft sticks but craft glue will work as well.
Glue the craft sticks down in the shape of a Menorah on the piece of cardboard. Grab some yellow construction paper or foam sheets and cut out nine candle flames. Glue those down on top of the candles.
Take yellow glitter glue and give the candle flames some glitter!
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
