Let’s learn about Hanukkah.
This kit gives you everything you need to teach an engaging program of activities about the Jewish Festival of Lights
Learn why and how Hanukkah is celebrated with math, writing, food, games, sensory play, art, and crafts.
I’ve created this Hanukkah Unit to make it easy for you to introduce your children to this special festival.
It’s so important to raise our children to understand they are global citizens, in a diverse and vibrant world. Learning about the festivals celebrated around the world is a fun, accessible way for children to appreciate the differences and similarities between cultures.
Everything is organised for you, with (simple) materials lists and supporting printables. It’s a no-prep solution that will make the Jewish Festival of Lights fun and meaningful, for you and your children.
Everything you need for this festive unit, all in one place.
