These miniature Menorah Cookies are a sure way to brighten your next Hanukkah celebration. These edible Dreidels are a tasty spin-off from the traditional Hanukkah game and a fun way to improve fine motor skills.
If you’re looking for more savory than sweet, use your pincher fingers and fine motor skills to make a cheese and pretzel menorah. Add a side of apple slices and oranges, and you’ll have a balanced snack to keep you fueled through the festivities!
Pro-Tip: Use these activities to practice some handwriting over the holidays. Write out the steps. Have kids copy the recipe before assembling the snacks. It’s excellent practice for sequencing and following multi-step directions.
For older children, have them make the snacks first, then write each step in sequential detail for how they made it. Encourage self-checking their work to make sure that others can read and understand what they wrote. Either way it’s a novel way to get in some handwriting practice during the winter break.
