Macaroni Menorah

Let kids create their own menorah for a decoration or card to celebrate Hanukkah. This craft will be a wonderful way to encourage a discussion about religious customs and understanding of different religions.


Dry macaroni
Dry lentils
White glue
Cotton bud
Red crepe paper


Take some small pieces of red crepe paper and roll them between your fingers until they are thin enough to poke inside some macaroni. Use this technique to make nine macaroni candles.

Paste the candles onto the card to make a Menorah. Use two pieces of mararoni for the shamash.

Using white glue and a cotton bud, paint on the rest of the menorah and decorate using dry lentils.

Cut out and paste onto contrasting cardboard to make a card or picture.
