Tube Menorah

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • 8 toilet paper tubes
  • 1 paper towel tube
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • 1 piece of cardboard 8" x 11"
  • Holiday gift wrap scraps
  • Yellow or orange tissue paper

With this menorah, you can add all of the flames at once or have your child add a flame on each night of the holiday.

  1. Cut four 1/4-inch-long slits on one end of each tube. Fold these tabs back. Arrange the tubes on the cardboard-the tall tube in the center and four smaller tubes on each side. Glue in place.
  2. Have your child glue the wrapping paper on the tubes for decoration. Encourage her to make the tall one (Shamash) stand out from the others.
  3. Show your child how to crinkle a square of the tissue paper and stuff it into the top of a tube to represent a candle flame. Start with the center candle and do the same for all of the others.
