Hanukkah is a visual, hands-on learning delight for children who excel in creativity.  Activities for Hanukkah are a great outlet from the daily chore of doing typical schoolwork.

During the Hanukkah, you can teach your child about the history of the temple restoration. Your child can learn about the eight lights and nine branches of the menorah.

Whether you are Jewish or of another faith, Hanukkah interests many kids. Teaching your kids the Jewish traditions for Hanukkah will help them with history, culture, religion, and other related studies.

Your kids might enjoy art projects, baking, learning to make candles, or playing with a dreidel. Explore the sites below to find cool hands-on activities for your kids.

By letting your child learn through activities for Hanukkah, you can get away from the books. After all, too much time with books can cause kids with specific learning disabilities stress.
