Fun Holiday Kids’ Recipes for Hanukkah
Cooking activities for kids provide an easy way for your little learner to develop new skills, explore kitchen science and celebrate special days. You have eight nights of Hanukkah to get into the kitchen with your kiddos, create sweet and savory treats, snacks and meals for the whole family. If you’re not sure where to start, check out these easy children’s Hanukkah recipes. Keep in mind, you always need to supervise your child in the kitchen. Never allow a child to use a stove, oven, sharp cooking tool or anything that could pose a safety risk.
Hanukkah Cereal Mix
Mix dry cereal (Chex or Chex-type cereal) with pretzels rods, dried blueberries, vanilla yogurt-covered raisins and nuts. You can sprinkle powdered sugar on top for a winter-time snowy effect!
Stack graham crackers, white chocolate and marshmallows together. Parents can heat the marshmallows in the microwave first, making them ooey and gooey (carefully test the temperature to make sure that your child doesn’t burn themselves). Let the marshmallows cool, and then decorate the top graham with blue and white frosting and sprinkle.
Make your child’s favorite sandwich, using a flat wheat bread. Spread peanut butter and jelly across the bread, add cheese or use cold cuts. Each family member can request their own filling! Cut the sandwich into a dreidel shape. Either use a knife (an adult should do this step) or a dreidel cookie cutter. Add a handle at the top with a cut carrot or piece of celery. Your child can decorate the front of the dreidel, writing a Hebrew letter with jelly, mustard or another condiment that matches what’s inside.
