Kids Games

It's always a good idea to have some games for the kids to keep busy while you're cooking and prepping for the big meal. Why not put together a quick "puzzle" for the younger ones?

Cut 2 paper straws in half, then cut in half again to make 8 quarters. Cut another straw in half, and you'll need one last quarter piece. This will make up the menorah and 8 candles.

I put my set in a muslin bag, and used sharpies in colors similar to the straws to color on the bag and customize it for 2013. 

Kids can put it together, adding the right number of candles for each night, or just as a whole. Use the bag for storage and throw in your purse to take with you!

This is a great gift to make if you're having a bunch of kiddos over for Thanksgivukkah, you can add each child's name to the bag!
