Crazy Nights: #1

Our first few Hanukkah crafts:

 1. This sweet advent style menorah craft a friend of mine found in Family Fun magazine. Although we were a little rushed in putting them together, they turned out really cute & I look forward to using it, or something similar for years to come. I know the girls will flip when they realize what it’s for (which will be this evening). Each candle has a paper behind it that lists one special activity for each day of Hanukkah…what could they all be?!

2. Rolling a few candles out of beeswax. Naomi loves doing this. It takes 44 candles to light a menorah all week, so there will be plenty more rolling to do, but we have enough done for tonight’s first candle & the Shamash (servant candle in the middle of the menorah–it lights all the rest).

We’ll keep rolling them out!

    Kind of bummed about tonight. Leave it to the Vaughns to be late and miss everything! We had to make up for it with LOTS of doughnuts:)

    How fun! My kids have really gotten into the "special activity" thing this year. Rolling candles are lots of fun. 🙂

    Great activities. I came her from the ROTH blog. Will have to come again.
