An Easy Hanukkah Decoration

Stained Glass Windows "Light Up" Your Home

Hanukkah DecorationMake a memorable Hanukkah decoration this year. Stained-glass window decorations will "light up" your home this holiday season and help create a festive mood.

It's a Hanukkah tradition to display a lighted menorah in a window of your home. This easy Hanukkah craft for kids lets you display a holiday scene from every window! Black construction paper, colored cellophane, glue and scissors are all you'll need....and a bit of imagination won't hurt, either!

Use some of the suggestions shown here (the Hanukkah display from the communal diningroom of Kibbutz Mishmar Hasharon), or create your own! Use the symbols of Hanukkah: the dreidel, menorah, candles, a decide. Follow our simple instructions, but above all....have fun!

Wishing you a Happy Hanukkah!
