Thursday Games: Menorah Race

Each Thursday we'll bring you a fun game to play with your kids!

This week's game is...

Menorah Race

(for each team)
8 toilet paper rolls
1 paper towel roll

Ahead of time, have children paint eight toliet paper rolls and one paper towel roll in hanukkah colors (blue, yellow, gold, white). Attach construction paper or tissue paper "flames" with tape or staples. The day of your Hanukkah party, after sitting through stories, candle lighting, playing dreidel and eating latkes, the crowd will get fidgety. Have a menorah race. Divide group into fairly even teams. Set a long block at the farthest point of the race, with the paper towel roll "Shamesh" (helper candle) in the middle. Each child gets a candle. Each team would have 8 candles and a menorah block base with Shamesh in the middle. The race starts. It is a relay. One by one, children on a team run to the menorah, add a candle and run back to give their next teammate a turn. The first team to build the menorah wins.
