Popsicle Stick Menorahs

I made a simple out line of a menorah. The kids colored popsicle sticks and glued them on the lines. They scrunched up tissue paper to create flames.

Ice Cube Painting

We painted with ice cubes for letter 'I'.

Ice cube paint recipe:
Put 1 teaspoon of tempera paint in each section of an ice cube tray.
Then fill the rest of the section with water and stir.
After they sit 10 minutes,  stir the paint in again.
Put them in the freezer. Insert popsicle sticks once they are slightly frozen. 

Forming Shapes

We formed triangles with popsicle sticks. You can also print out a simple outline of different shapes that they can match up.

Dreidel Patterns

I started off a pattern and they had to complete it with different colored dreidels.

Dreidel Counting

We counted dreidels and had to match them by color.

Winter Snowflake

For our winter theme, we baked pancakes. When they were ready, we put a doily on top and sprinkled confectioner's sugar on it to make a snowflake.

Chanukah Frame

We decorated these frames and game them out to our mommies at our Chanukah performance. I stuck a magnet on the back.


When we learned about germs, we made these guys. We traced our hand and cut it out. Put together the face,  put on a tissue and then our hand.

Tu B'shevat Tree

We crushed tri-colored pasta and pasted it on as leaves. We also painted the trunk.
