Looking for some new ways and fun ideas to help you celebrate Chanukah with the kids? Here are a few ideas, courtesy of The Judaica Shop at Congregation B’nai Jacob in Woodbridge.
“I have a little Dreidel. I made it out of Lego!” This year, spin a dreidel made entirely out of LEGO – there are lots to choose from, each one hand-stamped, already assembled in cool color combinations, and can be taken apart and re-assembled.
- Chanukah Midrash Manicures are nail decals reflecting all the symbols of the holiday. A hands-on holiday education for all ages. Easy to apply, the decals last for all eight days and more. 15 student-size and 15 adult-size stick-on nail decals are included.
- 3-D Dreidel Glasses are holographic specs transform points of light such as candles on the menorah into dazzling sights.
- The Kinetic Chanukah Sculpture is made of silver-tone metal; each of its 50 pieces is fashioned into assorted menorah and dreidel shapes that can be manipulated in any way you choose to create a unique sculpture.
- The Menorah Art Cube opens and unfolds — then refolds and refolds again — to create images of nine different menorahs selected from the New York Jewish Museum’s permanent collection. Each Cube comes with a descriptive illustrated story card that reveals the history behind these beautiful menorahs.
