How to Make a Menorah

3.0 based on 2 ratings

What You Need:

  • A wooden board
  • 10 metal locknuts (available at hardware stores; bring a Hanukkah candle with you to test which size would best hold the candle)
  • Craft glue
  • Tinfoil
  • Clear packing tape
  • Hanukkah candles

What You Do:

  1. Cover the wood with tin foil and tape the foil closed on the underside.
  2. Let your child glue 8 locknuts to the board in any pattern.
  3. The last 2 locknuts can be glued anywhere on the board, but they need to be glued in a stack. This will be your "shamash", or helper, and will hold the candle that will light the actual Hanukkah candles.
  4. Insert candles as needed for the Hanukkah ceremony, using the shamash candle and one other candle the first night.
