Hanukkah Paint Projects for Kids
Get creative this Hanukkah with a few fun-filled kids’ paint projects. Break out the temperas or finger paints and try these creative crafts for children in preschool and up!
Menorah Finger Paint Art
Pour tempera or finger paint onto cut pieces of recycled cardboard or paper plates. Help your child to dip one finger into the paint. Press their finger onto a piece of construction paper or card stock to make a candle paint print. Repeat for each candle in the menorah. Your child can dip the tip of one finger into yellow paint and dot flames on to the top of each candle.
Draw a dreidel shape onto a piece of recycled cardboard. Poke a hole through the center of the shape and cut the middle out, leaving a stencil for your child to use. Place the stencil on top of a piece of card stock or poster board paper. Your child can paint inside the center. Remove the stencil to reveal a dreidel shape.
Hanukkah Sponge Paint
Instead of their fingers, your child can use a sponge to paint a menorah. Cut a kitchen sponge into pieces and dip it into temperas. Paint print the menorah shape and the candles’ flames.
