This year we are choosing a holiday other than Christmas to learn about. We chose Hanukkah and I created some Hanukkah Themed I-Spy pages for my kids so they can be introduced to the different items and traditions that are typical for a Hanukkah celebration.

Resources for Teaching About Hanukkah with Children

If you are not familiar with Hanukkah, I wanted to give you some links for further research and other activities you can do with your children.

Hanukkah (Chanukah) is a Jewish holiday celebrated for 8 nights in December (in 2020 it is December 10-18). It is also referred to as the “festival of lights” and is celebrated nightly with the lighting of the Menorah, saying special prayers, and eating fried foods.

You can read more about the history of Hanukkah here.

We have some friends who grew up celebrating Hanukkah and we also live in an area that has a lot of German/Jewish heritage. I also want my children to be introduced to other cultures and holidays that they might not be as familiar with.

If you personally celebrate Hanukkah and have some suggestions for resources I could list here, I'd love to hear from you. Just comment below with your suggestions.
