Recycled Menorah

Since we didn't bring many holiday items with us to Louisiana, we are creating our own decorations. Here's our recycled menorah. The kids and I made this menorah with toilet paper (and one paper towel) rolls, a large box, and magazines. We started by cutting out images we liked and then attached them with blue masking tape. This was much easier than my original plan for glue/modge podge. I cut out a couple of words that were meaningful for our family and attached those. Then we painted the paper rolls, glued on construction paper flames, and we had ourselves a colorful new menorah.

nice hanukkiyah!! i never know what to do with Hanukkah as a non-Jew married to an extremely un-religious half-Jew (if you accept such a designation)...

FAN-tastic. LOVE it. My kids favorite holiday song this year is Hanukkah Blessings by the Barenaked Ladies. They call it "Spark" :)

Stumbled across this via Crafty Crow. Awesome! Perfect activity for a snowed-in sort of day (in Ontario, Canada). Take it easy this week. Sounds like you're having a tough time.
