With all the decorating, baking and gift giving, it’s easy to get caught up in adult crafting for the holidays. It’s easy to forget to get kids in on the action, too. One holiday that’s coming up quickly is Hanukkah (starting December 20th), and in celebration I’ve compiled a list of fun tutorials for cute Hanukkah projects. Adults can easily make these with children, and most of them need minimal supervision. One of my favorite blogs for Hanukkah projects is Creative Jewish Mom; author Sara made these torn paper silhouettes with her children. There are so many more ideas for great kids’ Hanukkah projects.
