To help our readers celebrate a joyous Hanukkah, we've rounded up some of our favorite holiday crafts, recipes and events in Chicagoland.
Another great Hanukkah craft idea from the Creative Jewish Mom blog. To help the kids personalize their menorah, give them individual candles to decorate with glitter, sequins, scraps of a paper, yarn etc, and glue on the flame at the end.
Give your Hanukkah gathering a handmade touch with this mini-dreidel bunting we love from the Creative Jewish Mom blog! She recommends using it on a cake, and we think the kids would love to use it as a banner for their toys and dolls.
For younger children, it's fun to make a menorah that uses faux candles, so the child can "light" it themselves with no worries. This one uses nine popsicle sticks, topped with glitter (or orange marker) to stand in for the candles
We asked the folks at AllRecipes.com to share with us the most popular Hanukkah recipes on their site. Any of these should make your family get-together special.
