Here are a few more Chanukah activities that we have been doing over the past few days:
Made a dreidel out of ICE by pouring water into a plastic dreidle that usually comes with candy inside- the little guy really got a kick out of trying to spin it since it was so cold:)
We then made a Menorah out of Legos, he did this all by himself, very proud mama!
And here is our human dreidle!
Suri at http://jewishul.blogspot.com/ asked me how I find time to prepare all the things we do-
So I figured I would turn it into a post, maybe it could be useful to others!
The truth is, I would love to say that I have a planner and sit down every week and make a plan for the week- but I don't. We have alot going on in our busy lives with some very unpredictable little ones at home and so I found a system that really works for us right now- this is it:
Every Sunday I fill the drawers with new activities and worksheets that I either made or from the Jewish curriculum resources on the side bar that I listed.
Then as the week goes by, I will refill them with new things. Its a nice way to organize, kind of a tweak on the Workbox system.
We also do ALOT of things spur of the moment, like baking and projects, games, etc.
I think that as the kids get older I will have a more organized schedule and curriculum, but for now, this really works for us!
Wishing all a happy last days of Chanukah!
