During Hanukkah, we celebrate our abilities to find light in the dark or our perseverance despite life’s challenges and difficulties. Remember, this event will last for eight days. Even so, there are lots of fun activities you can do with your family and friends to make it a memorable one. To give you a better view, here are some great ways to celebrate Hanukkah with family and friends.
1. Make Latke
A latke is a pancake made of potatoes, eggs, onions, and matzo meal or flour. But, you can also make different versions of this recipe during Hanukkah. For instance, you can use sweet potatoes or butter squash instead of potatoes. The best part is that your kids will love making and eating this delicious food. Of course, you have to apply necessary precautions to ensure the safety of your children.
2. Play Dreidel
One of the most popular ways to celebrate Hanukkah with family and friends is to play Dreidel. This game involves spinning dreidels, which is a four-sided top made of wood or plastic.
The Dreidel is not only easy to play. It is also exciting and enjoyable because it is a game of chance. Plus, the golden coins can be substituted with chocolate, making the game enjoyable for your kids. Plus, this activity will also allow your children to learn some Hebrew letters.
3. Decorate Donuts
Aside from latke, donuts are another traditional food eaten during Hanukkah. Instead of buying donuts, you can make this delicious food with your family or friends.
Making donuts is not only fun. Your children can also use their creativity in this activity. Plus, you can buy some Hanukkah-themed stencils for a more festive vibe.
4. Gelt Hunt
Traditionally, children get a chocolate gelt each night of the Hannukah. However, instead of giving it to them, you can make it more exciting by doing a gelt hunt. You can hide the chocolate gelts around your house, and whoever gets the most gelts will get a special reward.
Hanukkah is a time to connect with your family and friends. However, this celebration is not only about gathering and eating delicious foods. You can also make it fun and exciting by playing games and other activities. Remember, there are numerous ways to celebrate Hanukkah with your family and friends. Always remember, this event is a celebration of faith and hope. As such, you can also share inspirational stories relating to these themes.
