Here are some great Hanukkah activities for the whole family! Design your own wrapping paper for Hanukkah gifts
Use craft paper or newsprint and stamp Hanukkah symbols such as a menorah or a dreidel onto the paper. Or draw symbols with glue and sprinkle with blue and silver glitter.

Make your very own beeswax candles for the family menorah
Beeswax is sold in sheets in lots of different colors. Simply place a length of wick onto a sheet, then roll the sheet tightly around the wick. Press the edge of the wax sheet to the roll, and you've got beautiful homemade candles!

Make Star of David decorations for your home
Form a triangle with three Popsicle sticks and glue them together. Form another triangle the same way. Glue the two triangles together in the form of a Star of David. Draw squiggly lines on the star with glue, and sprinkle with blue glitter if you wish. Hang the stars around your home, using yarn or ribbon.

Decorate plain blue ball ornaments with silver and gold paint pens Draw Hanukkah symbols such as a dreidel and a Star of David. Attach a piece of pretty ribbon to the ornaments and hang them in windows and on cupboard handles.
