Create a kid-friendly menorah for your Hanukkah celebration!
What You'll Need
- cardboard box (optional: to make painting easier)
How We Did It
If desired, attach the clothespins to a cardboard box for easy painting and less mess. Give your child paint and paintbrushes and have him paint both the front and the back of the clothespins. Mixing colors is encouraged! Allow to dry.
To create the menorah itself, take a piece of craft paper (we used blue, glittery paper from the craft store) and fold in half.
Hot-glue the smaller folded piece of paper to the larger piece. This now forms the menorah. The piece in the middle is for the shamash candle or the helper candle, which should always be higher than the other candles on the menorah.
