Play “My Menorah” Together
Download the app “My Menorah” and play it together with your child, setting the scene for the following activities on today’s theme: Miracles
List Your Miracles
The story of Chanukah is about miracles- something happening that no one would think is possible. Ask each family member, what are some miracles in your life?
Select a graphic of your choosing. (We suggest using Ji Studio, and the graphics provided there, including menorahs, dreidels, etc.) Enter your list of miracles into the graphics (for example, type your miracles within the flames of the menorah, on the sides of the dreidel, etc.)
Sum up Your Family
The dreidel has 4 letters – nun, gimmel, hay, shin to stand for “Nes Gadol Haya Sham- a great miracle happened there.” It’s the sentence that summarizes the whole story of Chanukah.
What sentence would you use to summarize the story of your family? If you had to make one sentence about your family, what would it be? Use Ji Studio to make a poster of your sentence. Save it and print it out to hang near your menorah.
