We used these books:
We played Dreidel:
The boys made their own Dreidel:
We made Potato Latkes for lunch. This was the perfect recipe to make with children. The boys took turns peeling and grating the potatoes then adding the final ingredients and stirring. I did all of the frying. We wanted to be authentic so we ate ours with applesauce (but then I pulled out the ketchup!)
The boys each made a menorah:
|Bud wouldn't hold his still for a picture and Mowgli wrote his name in the middle of his, so his only shows the top.|
We also located Israel on the map and globe and learned the history of Hanukkah and the reason behind the 8 candles.
