DIY Hanukkah Wrapping Paper Art for Kids
Kids can craft their own Hanukkah wrapping paper for eight nights of fun-filled gift-giving. This easy-to-make art activity is perfect for preschoolers, kindergartners or your grade school-aged child.
Kids’ Craft Materials You’ll Need
- Plain white or light-colored wrapping paper
- Tempera paint
- Paper plates
Art-Making Steps for Kids
- Unroll the paper or cut it into flat sheets. Cutting the paper may make it easier for younger children to create their own art.
- Pour different colors of tempera paint onto paper plates. Make pools that are large enough to fit your child’s entire finger in. Add one pool of yellow paint (for the candle’s flames) that your child can dip their fingertips into.
- Help your child to dip their fingers into the paint, one at a time. If needed, use a paintbrush to coat the entire finger (palm side) with tempera.
- Press the paint-covered finger onto the paper. Repeat to make each of the menorah’s candles.
- Add flames on top of the candles with yellow fingerprints. Your child can dot different numbers of candle flames for each night of the holiday. This means one painted menorah may have one flame, while another could have eight little lights.
- Let the paint dry completely before you wrap your holiday presents.
