Chanukah is celebrated by Jewish people around the world. Honor the Festival of Lights by hand-crafting a beautiful banner.
Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, is a Jewish holiday celebrated for 8 days each winter. During this time, children and families look forward to dreidels, latkes, and the daily lighting of the menorah. Find out more about Chanukah celebrations in your community and around the word. Why do menorahs have nine candles?
Here is one way to make a colorful, decorative banner for the holiday season. To create the candles, lay both of your hands on a paper. Spread out your fingers, with your thumbs together. Ask a classmate to trace your hands for you with Crayola® Colored Pencils.
Draw a pretend candle flame on each fingertip, but not the thumbs. Cut out around the candles using Crayola Scissors. Color them with Crayola Washable Markers.
On another paper, draw a large candle for the center of your menorah. Add a colorful flame to the tip. Cut it out. Place it on top of the thumb prints using a Crayola Glue Stick.
On another piece of paper, draw and color the base of the menorah. Use your imagination and Crayola Multicultural Markers to make it resemble wood grain.
Use markers to color a background for your banner. Glue the menorah on the background. Add words such as Happy Chanukah or Festival of Lights. Use Hebrew letters if you can.
Punch holes at the top of the banner for hanging. Thread a ribbon through the holes and knot.
