Chanukah is a celebration of light. Create a suncatcher that shows what this holiday means to you.
The Jewish holiday of Chanukah means many things. Some people recommit to their faith. Others retell the holiday’s historic stories. Many Hebrew families gather with loved ones. Some symbols associated with the holiday include the Star of David, oil lamps, menorahs, and dreidels. Here is one way for students to make a suncatcher to celebrate the Festival of Lights.
Fold sturdy construction paper in half. Using a bowl as a template, trace a circle with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. With Crayola Scissors, cut out both circles at the same time (start by poking a hole inside the circle). Erase any stray colored pencil marks.
Place colored tissue paper inside the construction paper "sandwich." Secure it to one side with a Crayola Glue Stick. Glue ribbon inside the folded paper. Glue the sides together. With Crayola Metallic Colored Pencils, decorate the suncatcher with Chanukah symbols. You could also cut paper symbols and glue them on the suncatcher.
Celebrate the Festival of Lights with a handmade challah cover. Children are delighted to help prepare for this holiday,
