Paper Plate Hanukkah Menorah

My Nanny Kids loved making this paper plate menorah for Hanukkah. Let the kids paint the paper plate, candles, and flames themselves. Older children can cut out their own candles and flames. But you can cut the shapes for little kids and allow them to paste the candles to the back of the paper plate themselves.

You Will Need:

Paper Plate
Piece of Paper
Blue, Yellow, and Orange or Red Kids Paint

Orange Marker (optional)
Paint Brush
Ribbon, Yarn, or Thread
Paper Trimmer (optional)

What to Do:

1. Protect the work surface and gather supplies.

2. Cut the paper plate in half.

3. Allow the children to paint one half of plate blue and the other half yellow.

4. Paint a piece of paper yellow, orange, or/and red to make flames.

5. Once dry, cut out 9 candles from the blue plate. I used a Paper Trimmer to cut out 1 mm wide candles.

6. Cut the flames from the yellow, orange, and red paper. Paste the flames to back of blue candles. My Nanny Kid used an orange marker to draw orange to her flame.

7. Once candles are dry paste to back of yellow plate.

8. Fasten ribbon or yarn to each side of the menorah or use a needle and thread like I did so the kids can hang it up on a door, window, or fire place mantel.
