Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights starts the night of December 21 and ends on December 28 this year. The menorah candelabra that Jews light each of the eight nights of the holiday -- adding an additional candle each evening -- is one of the most familiar symbols of this holiday. This craft idea from Crayola makes it possible for every child to make his or her own decorative paper menorah, one that makes a very beautiful table centerpiece that you can reuse year after year. Since it doesn't involve real candles it is not only safe, it's fun and easy to make and something that you and your child can craft together.
