Kids can get as inventive as they like transforming their toilet paper rolls into candles for their menorah. We kept ours easy, painting them in vibrant colours and adding the information with a liner brush or colourful washi tape.
If you want to make your candles fancier, you can decorate them with buttons, craft jewels, sequins, glitter… the sky’s the limit truly.
We created our flames out of tissue paper so they slide in and out of the cardboard tubes quickly. That way, tiny ones can essentially “light” their menorah by adding a flame to one particular of the candles each evening all through Hanukkah.
If older youngsters want a much more realistic seeking flame, they can make these paper circle flames that slide into slits in the prime of the cardboard tube.
