Colorful Tape Menorah Craft for Kids

These easy, colorful and fun menorah’s are a fun craft for Hanukkah.  They were the idea of my 7-year-old daughter. She wanted to do a simple menorah craft for kids in her American Girl book club.

The smaller rolls pictured below are washi tape.  The larger rolls are duct tape and some blue painters tape. You really can use whatever you have on hand for this project.

This craft took about 10 minutes of prep and about 15 minutes for the kids to complete.

We didn’t have any yellow tape to make the flames on our candles, so we cut out some flame shapes using yellow construction paper, and glued them on.

When the kids were finished creating their menorah’s, they chose a piece of colorful construction paper and we mounted them.

This craft went nicely with our history series with American Girl doll Rebecca. We used it to go along with the book  Candlelight for Rebecca.
