Cardboard dozen egg carton

Flame Templates (Print below.)

Nick Jr. Hanukkah Stickers (Optional)


How to Make

misc-eggCartonMenorah-steps1-3Step One: Cut off the egg carton lid and locks, and then cut the egg carton lengthwise into two long 6-cup rows. Trim any rough edges.

Step Two: Set aside one row and cut the other row in half, width-wise. You’ll now have one long row of six egg cups and two small rows of three egg cups each.

Step Three: Turn all the egg cup sections upside down so the open ends are face down on your work surface. Cut a slit in the top of each egg cup, just wide enough to slide in a craft stick. (Parents will want to do this part!)

Step Four: Glue the 6-cup row to the end of one of the three cup rows. You’ll now have one long row of 9 egg cups. Let the glue dry.


Step Five: Help your child paint the menorah with glitter paint. You may want to apply extra paint over the seam where two sections were glued together.

Step Six: After the paint dries, insert colored craft sticks into each slit.

Step Seven: Help your child cut out Hanukkah stickers on sticker paper and use them to decorate the menorah.

Step Eight: Print the flame templates and cut out nine flame shapes. When Hanukkah begins, have your child glue one flame to a craft stick each day.
