Make an
Edible Menorah

After explaining the importance of this Hanukkah symbol, invite children to create an edible menorah. Each child can place a piece of bread with its crust on a plate and spread it with peanut butter (use sunflower seed butter if children have peanut allergies). Provide each child with nine carrot rounds, nine raisins, and nine pretzel sticks. Invite children to

  • place the carrot rounds flat onto the bread slice (along the bottom edge of the bread) with one in the middle slightly higher than the others.
  • place a pretzel stick flat on the bread above each carrot round.
  • place a raisin on top of each pretzel stick as a flame.

When complete, children can eat their delicious menorahs.
