A great way to send Chanukah greetings to loved ones, particularly grandparents, is by mailing out a great themed picture! Kinda like the Fall picture which can alternately be used for Thanksgiving, here's a great Chanukah photo!
Set up a Chanukah display table with a Menorah, Dreidel, Chocolate coins, etc. If you don't have one yet, Kidcraft makes a great set that you can get here
. Take a photo of each kid either holding the sham ash to the candles, or just smiling with the set, and then frame it! Cut a frame from craft foam. Make sure you cut a 1/4 inch smaller than the photo size you'll be printing so that the photo has something to stick to. Then, decorate the frames with Chanukah Foam Shapes
! If you don't have Chanukah foam shapes, use regular foam shapes or other flat materials, just beware that if you need to glue the materials down, you'll need to use tacky glue
, as opposed to the regular school glue.
Mail the photo frames to a grandparent or parent for Chanukah! I like to do this during free play for a couple consecutive days so that kids can make 2 for both sets of grandparents.
